Tompkins County Undersheriff Jennifer Olin will attend the highly-selective FBI National Academy in Quantico, Virginia this April.
Olin will become the second member of the Sheriff’s Department to attend the Academy, the first being Sheriff Derek Osborne on 2007, according to Tompkins Weekly. The Academy is a ten-week professional development course for law enforcement training and education. Only 1% of U.S. law enforcement have the opportunity to participate in this prestigious program.
Osborne said when he appointed Olin to undersheriff, he knew she would eventually attend the FBI Academy given her record of dedication and performance. Olin will continue to serve as undersheriff up to and after she attends the ten-week course, will others in the Sheriff’s Department taking over undersheriff duties in her absence.
