FBINAA and University of Phoenix

Welcome, FBI National Academy Associates graduates

Criminal justice and security degree programs at University of Phoenix are designed to help students develop the knowledge and skills needed to become leaders within their organizations.

She combined her two passions – law enforcement and education – and has risen through the ranks from cadet to police captain to serve as president of FBINAA.

Our curricula focuses on management and is taught by faculty members who have extensive experience in the field, and many have held leadership roles such as police chiefs, sheriffs, commanders or captains. Courses cover managing personnel, budgeting, operational planning, contracts and ethics, interpersonal communications, threat, cybercrime and more.
