FAYETTEVILLE POLICE ANNOUNCE THE CULMINATION OF THE SCHOOL OF POLICE STAFF AND COMMAND FOR LIEUTENANT BRIAN WATERS

01/04/2010

Fayetteville Police Chief Greg Tabor announced today Lieutenant Brian Waters successfully completed  Northwestern University’s Center for Public Safety School of Staff and Command.    

On December 18th, 2009, Lieutenant Brian Waters graduated from Northwestern  University’s School of Police Staff and Command.  The School of Police Staff and Command is an intensive ten-week program that provides students with the knowledge and skills necessary for increased responsibilities in administrative staff or line command positions. The program has been in place since 1983. Lieutenant Waters began his career in law enforcement with the Fayetteville Police Department in 1986 and worked his way through the ranks to achieve his current command assignment.

            The course was hosted by the Tennessee Department of Safety in Nashville, Tennessee and started on October 5th, 2009.  The class contained thirty-two law enforcement officers from six different agencies in  Delaware, North Carolina, Kentucky, Texas, Tennessee and Arkansas.  At the beginning of the course, Lieutenant Waters was elected to the position of vice president of the class.                                                                            

           At the graduation ceremony, Lieutenant Waters was awarded the Franklin M. Kreml Leadership Award to honor his outstanding performance as class vice president and mentor to his peers.  The leadership award is presented to the student who best displays the dedication, devotion, ethics, sense of justice, and other attributes that exemplify the kind of leadership that is needed in today’s law enforcement community. This award was established in perpetuity by the institute’s founder and its purpose is to recognize, and thus encourage, the high ethical and professional values and dedication to public service upon which the institute was founded.  This is the third straight year that a Fayetteville Police Department member has received this award.   Captain Kenny Yates received the award in 2007 and Lieutenant Rob Turberville received the award in 2008.

We congratulate Lieutenant Waters on this prestigious accomplishment and wish him well in his future professional endeavors.
