Thanks to Marion County Sheriff Jimmy Shinn for sharing this news with us. He offered this congratulations to Deputy John Moskal on Facebook this morning.

It's no small feat to be approved for the FBI Academy. As the official website states, this is "the world’s premier law enforcement learning and research center and an advocate for law enforcement’s best practices worldwide".

This is the type of training available for only the elite of the elite. The fact that one of our local Marion County deputies has been given this honor is really something.

Best wishes to Deputy John Moskal on this new adventure. We have no doubt you'll make our area proud.
