Commander Aaron Johnson Completes FBI Training

The National Academy of the Federal Bureau of Investigation recently held their 282nd session of their academy, at their headquarters in Quantico, VA. There were 254 women and men from 47 states, 37 countries, 4 military organizations and 9 federal and civilian agencies at the session. One of those attendees was Boulder City Police Department Commander Aaron Johnson.

The purpose of the Academy is to train officers in advanced communication, leadership, and fitness training. Being accepted to the Academy is difficult, with strict participation requirements. The training is held at the FBI Training Academy and lasts ten weeks.

Commander Johnson has worked for the Boulder City Police Department since 2006 and was promoted to his current position, the second highest rank in the department, in 2021. When asked about his experience at the training, Commander Johnson said, “The hardest par was being away from my family for 10 weeks. But it was great to meet and connect with law enforcement professionals from around the world, with whom I still communicate daily.”

The training is provided by FBI Academy instructors, special agents, and others with advanced degrees, with many highly sought after and recognized in their fields of expertise. The Academy is accredited by the University of Virginia and students are able to earn undergraduate and graduate credits from attendance at the Academy. At the completion of the Academy in June 2022, FBI Direction Christopher Wray delivered remarks to the class.

Commander Johnson went on to say, “I learned a lot about myself during the session. With the connections I’ve made, I can ask a single question that reaches about 250 classmates. Within seconds. I will have multiple responses to the question. What that does for Boulder City is provides a quicker response to community issues.”

“Policing today is challenging, so having Commander Johnson’s leadership is important to the department and our residents,” said City Manager Taylour Tedder. “I hope this rigorous training will help inspire others – especially our youth – in our community to consider careers in law enforcement.”

We are lucky to have Commander Johnson as part of our Boulder City community and we wish him and the Boulder City Police Department the best going forward.
