|Most of the civilian and military police officers
working or training at Fort McCoy will benefit from the new expertise
and experience gained by a member of the Fort McCoy Directorate of
Emergency Services (DES).
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
“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
Bomstein also will receive Installation Management Command Hero of the
Day recognition for his hard work.
