A St. Clair County Sheriff’s Deputy has graduated from the FBI National Academy. This prestigious honor is reserved for a select few in the law enforcement community. The officer is Road Patrol Captain Mat King.
A 21-year veteran of the Sheriff’s Department, Captain King supervises the Special Response Team and has been a supervisor for the Drug Task Force as well as a detective lieutenant. In a recent press release, Sheriff Donnellon, who also graduated from the academy in 2005, said he is “extremely proud of Captain King’s accomplishment. Only a very select few law enforcement members nationally and internationally are selected and complete the FBINA.”
The training is held at the FBI Headquarters in Quantico, Virginia and is internationally known for its academic excellence. Officers participate in ten weeks of advanced investigative, management and fitness training. Participants often return to their agencies to serve in executive-level positions. Captain King is the seventh member of the St. Clair County Sheriff’s Department to graduate from the FBI National Academy in the Department’s history.
