     Georgia State Patrol Lt. Karl Boerner of Statesboro, along with 255 other law enforcement officers, graduated  Dec. 12 from the Federal Bureau of Investigation National Academy Program at Quantico, Va.  
     Boerner, a 26 year veteran of the Georgia State Patrol, currently serves as the Assistant Troop J Commander.  He is a 1982 graduate of Augusta College and graduated from Columbus State University in 2006 with a Masters in Public Administration.
    Boerner is an adjunct professor at Georgia Southern University in the Political Science department.  He and his wife Abby, along with their four children, live in Statesboro.
    The 235th Session of the National Academy consisted of men and women from law enforcement agencies representing all 50 states, the District of Columbia, 26 international countries, four military organizations, and four federal civilian organizations.  FBI Director Robert Mueller was the principal speaker at the Dec. 12 ceremony.
    Internationally known for its academic excellence, the National Academy Program, held at the FBI Academy, offers 11 weeks of advanced investigative, management, and fitness training for selected officers having proven records as professionals within their agencies.
      On average, officers attending the National Academy have 19 years of law enforcement experience and usually return to their agencies to serve in executive level positions.  Training for the program is provided by FBI Academy instructional staff, Special Agents, and other staff members holding advanced degrees, many of whom are recognized internationally in their fields of expertise.
