Lt. Brian Bomstein, a shift commander for the Fort McCoy DES Police Department, completed a 10-week course at the FBI National Academy in Quantico, Va., earlier this summer with a 4.0 grade-point average.

The very thorough and intensive course translates into 17 college credits through the University of Virginia, he said. Students from throughout the world and from military and civilian career fields attended.

“I will be able to utilize what I have learned from the courses to better the Law Enforcement Division at Fort McCoy by providing guidance to peers and subordinates concerning investigations and evidence collection,” Bomstein said. “It also will help us improve our customer service to members of the Fort McCoy community.”

The course work covered a multitude of law-enforcement issues. Bomstein said the training will help him focus on investigative techniques and gathering forensic evidence, for example.

This will help Bomstein guide initial investigations into such potential issues as deaths or turn-over and follow-on investigations by the Criminal Investigation Division.

Bomstein said the experience also will help him prepare military police training with the department for potential scenarios.
He is an active-shooter instructor and helps train military police units in a number of topics, including crowd management and defense/arrest tactics at the Army Concert Tour event.

Having a chance to network with law-enforcement personnel from 48 states, the District of Columbia, four military agencies, five federal civilian organizations and 24 countries also brought together personnel with many talents and differing experiences, he said.

Many of the attendees work in senior management, Bomstein said.

If he needs assistance with an organizational issue or a law-enforcement matter, he has a large body of experience and expertise from which to draw.

Bomstein also will receive Installation Management Command Hero of the Day recognition for his hard work.
