PEOPLE: Mayor Allen Owen, the Mayor of Missouri City, Texas Attended the FBI Academy in Washington D.C. This Week



CONGRATULATIONS: Missouri City, Texas Mayor Allen Owen is Now a Member of the FBI Family According to A Recent Facebook Status Update He Posted

Mayor Allen Owen never stops working for the people of Missouri City, Texas. This week he was in Washington D.C., attending the FBI Academy. And now, according to him, he's a member of the FBI family.

ABOUT THE FBI ACADEMY

The FBI Academy is a full-service national training facility—with conference rooms and classrooms, dorms, firing ranges, a gym and pool, a library, a dining hall, even a mock town.

The FBI Academy is located on 547 acres on a Marine Corps base in Quantico, Virginia about 40 miles south of Washington, D.C. Much of the FBI’s training takes place at this location —from minting new agents and analysts to grooming law enforcement leaders from around the world. The Academy also serves as a premier learning and research center, an advocate for best practices throughout the global criminal justice community, and a place where lasting partnerships are forged among law enforcement and intelligence professionals worldwide.


AUBREY R. TAYLOR: "We must become more active participants in the process of choosing the people who govern over us on the local, state, and federal level."
