WARREN, NJ - Lt. Paul Dziedzic, Lt. Herbert Hentschel and Lt. Eric Yaccarino, all members of the Warren Township Police Department Command Staff, have now completed executive leadership training.
“Having attended the FBINA in 2013, I understand the rigorous training Lt. Dziedzic completed and I am very proud of his accomplishment," said Warren Township Police Chief William Keane.
Additionally, the training received by Lieutenants Hentschel and Yaccarino will also further the positive growth of the Warren Township Police Department and its leadership goals for the foreseeable future. As always I am grateful to the Township Committee for their continued support, especially for training like this, and for being so receptive to the needs of the police department."
In the fall of 2016, Lt. Paul Dziedzic of the Warren Township Police Department attended the 266th class of the FBI National Academy (FBINA) at the United States Marine Corps Base at Quantico, Va. This elite eleven week training, accredited by the University of Virginia, includes an intense program of college level academia, as well as advanced level training in communications, leadership and physical fitness. Officers are selected from an international candidate pool and are put through an arduous background process before being chosen for one of the four sessions offered each year. A graduation ceremony was held in December 2016 where FBI Director James Comey was the keynote speaker. A total of 49,686 graduates now represent the alumni of the FBINA since it began in 1935.
Lt. Dziedzic is a 24 year veteran of the Warren Police Department and is currently assigned as the Patrol Commander and Training Coordinator. Dziedzic said, “I felt fortunate to have been chosen to attend this prestigious training and I am very grateful to Chief Keane for recommending me.”
Additionally, in the summer of 2016, Lt. Herbert Hentschel completed the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Mid-Atlantic Law Enforcement Executive Development Seminar (LEEDS) at Princeton University. This training consisted of various methods of leadership tactics and current trends in managing newly hired officers. Lt. Hentschel is a 22 year veteran and currently assigned as the Services Commander.
Also, in the fall of 2016, Lt. Eric Yaccarino attended the New Jersey State Association of Chiefs of Police Command and Leadership Academy. This three month training is based on a curriculum from the United States Military Academy at West Point, and its proven leadership theories, and how to best implement them for maximum efficiency among police department members. A graduation ceremony was held earlier this month where a total of 75 law enforcement officers throughout the state received their certificates. Lt. Yaccarino is a 19 year veteran and currently assigned as the Administrative Commander.
