Village of Sussex — Police Services Director Captain Torin Misko of the Waukesha County Sheriff's department has been selected to attend the prestigious FBI National Academy in Quantico, Va. from Jan. 21 to March 28, of 2014.

The academy, authorized by Congress and created in 1935, is intended to help establish standardization and professionalization in law enforcement departments across the United State through centralized training, according to academy officials.

For 10 weeks, 250 officers from across the country take undergraduate and graduate level college courses in law, behavioral science, forensic science, leadership development, communication, health/fitness and understanding terrorism and terrorist mindsets.

Participation in each of the three to four sessions a year is by invitation only, and participants who are selected are leaders and managers of local, state, military, and federal law enforcement agencies. Misko will be one of four law enforcements officers attending the session from Wisconsin.

He was nominated by Sheriff Dan Trawicki and selected by the academy.

Some law enforcement officials believe that graduation from the FBI National Academy is essential to anyone who who wants to become a law enforcement chief executive including sheriff or police chief.

"It is a great honor to be selected," said Misko who is the police services director for the villages of Sussex and Merton as well as the Town of Lisbon. Each of those communities have police service contracts with the Waukesha County Sheriff's Office.

Misko is also the officer in charge of the day to day operations of the county sheriff's substation located in the Village of Sussex.

Misko was promoted to a newly created captain's position in July of 2013. Local officials asked Trawicki to create the new captains position in order to provide more longevity for the police services director and make the position more attractive for command officers.

Previously it was a lieutenant's position, the incumbent police services director would be assigned to a new position upon promotion to captain.

Lt. Lisa Panas will take Misko's post while he is at the academy.
