BI-FSU Chief SY graduates from FBI National Academy

Rendel Ryan Delfino Sy

A Filipino official, Bureau of Immigration – Fugitive Search Unit (FSU) chief Rendel Ryan Delfino Sy, was among the 237 law enforcement officers who graduated last December 8, 2022 from the FBI National Academy in Quantico, Virginia.

The 284th session of the National Academy consisted of men and women from 48 states and the District of Columbia and the class included members of law enforcement agencies from 25 countries, five military organization, and five federal civilian organizations.

Internationally known for its academic excellence, the National Academy offers 11 weeks of advanced communication, leadership and fitness training. Participants must have proven records as professionals within their agencies to attend. On average, these officers have 21 years of law enforcement experience and usually return to their agencies to serve in executive-level positions.

FBI Director Christopher Asher Wray delivered remarks at the ceremony while Class spokesperson William Lexton-Jones from the Metropolitan Police in the United Kingdom represented the graduating officers.

FBI Academy instructors, special agents and other staff with advanced degrees provide the training and many instructors are recognized internationally in their fields. Since 1972, National Academy students have been able to earn undergraduate and graduate credits from the University of Virginia, which accredits all of the National academy courses offered.

A total of 53,907 graduates have completed the FBI National academy since it began in 1935. The National Academy is held at the FBI Training Academy in Quantico, the same facility where FBI trains its new special agents and intelligence analysts.
