Sgt. Troy Cassioppi of the St. John the Baptist Sheriff’s Office graduated from the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s National Academy on Friday June 8th 2012. The FBI National Academy is designed to provide advanced training to law enforcement executives both from the United States and foreign law enforcement agencies. Two hundred sixty-four law enforcement officers from 48 states, and 24 international countries four military organizations, and five federal civilian organizations graduated from the 249th Session of the National Academy.

Jones for affording him the opportunity to attend the National Academy, and to current Sheriff Mike Tregre for affording him the chance to continue using these newly learned skills.  Sgt.
