Billings Police Officer Returns From FBI National Academy

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS -

Only a select few law enforcement officials are chosen to attend and one Billings police officer says he's humbled by the experience.

Kevin Iffland, who serves as an administrative lieutenant in the Billings Police Department, attended the FBI's National Academy in Quantico, Virginia this spring.

It's a ten week executive training course designed to instruct officers on how to deal with specific crime scenarios and best operate in their departments. Lieutenant Iffland heads up the Billings police officer training and said the experience he received will help him better prepare new officers on the force.

"I don't think that we're the first ones that are ever dealing with a situation. So that networking capability of gathering that information and maybe being able to talk to someone else who went through that I think will continue throughout my career in law enforcement," he said.

Only 1% of the nation's police force get a chance to participate in this training experience during their careers.
