Clarksville, TN – The Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office (MCSO) would like to congratulate Investigator Sergeant Bryan DeRose on graduating from the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation (TBI) State Academy.
The Academy was created as a professional and specialized training ground for Tennessee law enforcement officers who want to expand their education and training in the criminal justice field. Through the six-week course, attendees learned advanced investigative techniques, science, and strategy.
The TBI State Academy was modeled after the FBI’s National Academy, and includes coursework in the areas of leadership, constitutional law, communications intelligence, and crime scene and undercover investigations.
Candidates were nominated by their department heads and selected to attend, and were required to have five years of experience as a full-time commissioned officer of a Tennessee law enforcement agency.
DeRose was selected as the recipient of the prestigious Director’s Award. The officer selected for that award is the individual with the highest cumulative scores in academic tests, physical fitness, shooting competition, leadership presentation, and case presentation.
