Welcome to the

Wisconsin Chapter of the FBINAA


Dear Members of the Wisconsin Chapter of the FBI National Academy Associates,

It is with great pleasure and pride that I welcome you to another exciting year with our association. As your President, I am committed to fostering an environment where we can all continue to grow, learn, and support each other as law enforcement professionals.

Our chapter is more than just an organization; it’s a shared experience at the National Academy and a commitment to excellence in our field. Throughout the year, we host a variety of events designed to strengthen our bonds, enhance our professional development, and ensure the National Academy spirit remains vibrant.

I encourage each of you to actively participate in our events. Whether it’s showing your skills at our golf event, honing your marksmanship at the spring and fall shoots, enjoying camaraderie at the winter luncheon, relaxing at the summer retainer, or creating lasting memories at the family winter outing, there is something for everyone. These events are not just opportunities for fun and relaxation but also critical moments for networking and leadership development.

Networking within our chapter is invaluable. By connecting with peers, sharing insights, and building relationships, we strengthen our collective ability to lead and innovate within our respective agencies. I urge you to seize these opportunities to expand your network and support one another in our professional journeys.

Additionally, I want to extend a special invitation to our retired members. Your experience and wisdom are essential to our community. We need your continued participation and mentorship to guide the next generation of law enforcement leaders. If you know any retirees who have drifted away from the association, please reach out and encourage them to rejoin. Their presence enriches our chapter and keeps the legacy of the National Academy thriving.

Together, let’s make this year a memorable one filled with growth, learning, and shared successes. I look forward to seeing you at our upcoming events and working alongside you to uphold the values and traditions of the FBI National Academy Associates.

Thank you for your dedication and commitment.

Warm regards,

Dan Hartwig
President, Wisconsin Chapter
FBI National Academy Associates

The FBI National Academy is a professional course of study for U.S. and international law enforcement leaders that 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.

Its mission is "to support, promote, and enhance the personal and professional development of law enforcement leaders by preparing them for complex, dynamic, and contemporary challenges through innovative techniques, facilitating excellence in education and research, and forging partnerships throughout the world."

The ten-week program was established in 1935 by J. Edgar Hoover and is held at the FBI Training Academy in Quantico, Virginia. For each training session, four police executives from Wisconsin police agencies are selected to attend or 16 per year (there are four sessions per year). Approximately 250 law enforcement executives graduate during each session from all over the nation and the world.

The Wisconsin Chapter of the FBI National Academy Associates is created and organized to promote law enforcement leadership and cooperation in the State of Wisconsin, through continuing education and training, thereby enhancing the standards of professional conduct at all levels of law enforcement.

Our Wisconsin Chapter of the FBI National Academy Association (FBINAA) is made up of over 400 law enforcement command level officers from around the state. It is comprised of personnel from Federal, State, Tribal, County and Municipal departments who are dedicated to their profession, their communities and the Wisconsin Chapter of the FBINAA.

In 2008, our Wisconsin Chapter hosted the National FBINAA Conference in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The theme of that National Conference was "Partnering for a Safer World," which focused on public-private partnerships and the reality that law enforcement cannot do it alone.

With you and your organization as well as other private partners, we here in Wisconsin can build relationships and work together to provide a safer environment for all.
