Congratulations to Crime Analyst Lisa Gregory, who today graduated from the FDLE Law Enforcement Analyst Academy in Orlando! Lisa is now the fourth crime analyst at the Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office to receive state certification.

The academy, which began in 2003, is the first of its kind in the nation. During the six-week course which met one week a month for the past six months, analysts learned criminal and intelligence analysis skills that are used by law enforcement to successfully prevent crime and conduct complex investigations.
“I am immensely proud to provide Sarasota County with a well-educated workforce,” said Sheriff Knight. “Advanced training through respected certification programs enhances the development and growth of our personnel.”
