Irving Deputy Chief Graduates from FBI National Academy

Irving Police Department is proud to announce that Deputy Chief Kirk LeCroy has graduated as a member of the 283rd session of the FBI National Academy. The graduation occurred at the National Academy in Quantico, Virginia, on September 13, 2022. Deputy Chief LeCroy continues the proud tradition of Irving officers in completing this prestigious program. Nationally, fewer than one percent of officers have the opportunity to attend the program.

Internationally known for its academic excellence, the National Academy offers ten weeks of advanced communication, leadership, and fitness training. Participants must have proven records as professionals within their agencies to attend. On average, these officers have 21 years of law enforcement experience and usually return to their agencies to serve in executive-level positions.

The 283rd session consisted of two hundred thirty-five law enforcement officers from forty-nine states and the District of Columbia. The class included members of law enforcement agencies from twenty-one countries, five military organizations, and five federal and civilian agencies.

"The sacrifice of Deputy Chief LeCroy to attend this ten-week training away from his family so that he can be a stronger leader for our organization is admirable. Thank you and congratulations" – Chief Miller, Irving Police.

Deputy Chief LeCroy has held several roles within the department, including serving in the Patrol Division, Narcotics Investigator as an Officer and Sergeant, Lieutenant over our Family Advocacy Center, Division Commander over Detention & Evidence Division, and currently the Division Commander over our North Patrol Division.
