Nothing beats training at the highest level to hone the skills needed to be the best. Barnegat NJ Police Chief Keith Germain will have that opportunity.

He’s been chosen to attend an elite course at the Federal Bureau of Investigation National Academy. Not only is there a five year waiting period for the opportunity, but it’s an honor that fewer than one percent of LEOs across the world are afforded.

What’s really important about this as it pertains to the job of law enforcement today, is the cooperation between the federal agency and local cops. The cross training, cooperation and communication is critical to public safety. This is one example of a truly remarkable cop taking his skills to the next level. It also highlights the importance of cooperation throughout the law enforcement community.

Congratulations to Chief Germain. We’re looking forward to having you back in the Garden State to continue your superb record of maintaining peace and security in Barnegat.
