The Sarasota Police Department now has its 12th graduate of the FBI National Academy. 

Last week, SPD Chief Rex Troche unveiled the name of Capt. Demetri Konstantopoulos on the plaque that displays the names of all the department’s graduates of the program.

The FBI National Academy is a 10-week program of advanced communication, leadership and fitness training. To attend, participants must have a demonstrated record as a professional within their agency. On average, attendees have 21 years of law enforcement experience.

Konstantopoulos oversees the Support Services Division, which includes the Body Worn Camera Program, Property and Evidence Unit, Special Response Teams and more.

"The Sarasota Police Department takes great pride in recognizing excellence within our ranks," said Troche in a news release. "By completing the rigorous curriculum of the FBI National Academy, Capt. Konstantopoulos has not only demonstrated his commitment to personal growth, but also exemplified the highest standards of professionalism and dedication to service."

The 289th session of the National Academy included law enforcement professionals from 47 states, the District of Columbia, 23 countries, four military organizations and five federal civilian organizations.

The plaque is displayed in the community room on the second floor of the Sarasota Police Department at 2099 Adams Lane.
