DIA Police Officer Receives FLETC Honor
June 25, 2012
A Defense Intelligence Agency police officer earned the Director's Training Award from the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center in June.
Officer James Hooper distinguished himself as a graduate from FLETC's Uniformed Police Training Program and was selected by his peers as the graduate who most exemplifies the values of a federal law enforcement officer: integrity, fairness, respect, honesty, courage and compassion.
Hooper's class of 41 officers, which represented agencies including DIA, FBI, Amtrak, U.S. Mint, National Capitol Police and the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency, voted to determine the recipient of the Director's Training Award.
Headquartered in Glynco, Ga., the FLETC serves as an interagency law enforcement training organization for 90 federal agencies and provides services to state, local tribal and international law enforcement agencies. The Uniformed Police Training Program provides training in law enforcement knowledge, skills and abilities that a new federal officer must be able to perform in the first two years on the job. Officers receive instruction in a number of areas, including officer safety and survival, communications and interviewing, constitutional and federal criminal law, arrest techniques, defensive tactics, drugs of abuse, terrorism, VIP protection, physical security, firearms, tactics for flying while armed and driver training.
Prior to joining DIA in February, Hooper served for 25 years as a Virginia state trooper.
DIA is the nation’s premier all-source military intelligence organization.
It provides the nation’s most authoritative assessments of foreign military intentions and capabilities. The agency’s four core competencies -- human intelligence, all-source analysis, counterintelligence and technical intelligence -- enable military operations while also informing policy-makers at the defense and national levels.
DIA’s mission is unique and no other agency matches its military expertise across such a broad range of intelligence disciplines.
