On March 16, 2018- Mike Jaafar, Chief of Operations of the Wayne County Sheriff’s Office graduated from the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s National Academy (FBINA Session-271).

The FBI National Academy is a professional course of study for U.S. and international law enforcement managers nominated by their agency heads due to having demonstrated leadership qualities. The ten-week program provides coursework in physical fitness, intelligence theory, terrorism and terrorist mindsets, management science, law enforcement leadership, behavioral science, law enforcement communication, and forensic science.

The academy serves to improve the administration of justice in police departments and agencies at home and abroad, and to raise law enforcement standards, knowledge, and cooperation worldwide.

Only the top 1% percent of all enforcement leaders worldwide have the opportunity to graduate from the FBI National Academy. Chief Jaafar follows in Sheriff Napoleon’s footsteps, who is also a graduate of the FBINA.

“This was the most memorable law enforcement training I have ever experienced in life; I will forever cherish this opportunity. The comradery, network, and people involved have become like family – I met people from all over the world.  It was priceless,” said Chief Jaafar, 43, and father of five.

Chief Jaafar was highly successful, earning the prestigious Yellow Brick for successfully completing the running obstacle course designed by Marines. The course is a 6.2 mile journey that includes a running obstacle trail through the woods of Quantico, where he ran a mile in seven minutes, and four seconds, in addition to earning the Bike Brick and Rowing Brick awards for the physical challenges.

Chief Jaafar says, “The curriculum and agility is second to none. I thank Detroit FBI and Sheriff Benny Napoleon for the opportunity.”

Completion of this prestigious national program will benefit the Sheriff’s Office and help continue to provide our citizens with excellent law enforcement.

Former Deputy Chief, Mike Jaafar has been in law enforcement for 24 years, and was promoted to Chief of Operations in October of 2016.
