Local Security Forces Civilian Defender Graduates from FBI National Academy

Schriever SFB, CO - On October 5, 2023, the 50th Security Forces Squadron announced that Mr. Allan C. Sacdalan, Deputy Director, has graduated as a member of the 287th session of the FBI National Academy. The graduation took place at the National Academy in Quantico, Virginia on September 14th, 2023.  Mr. Sacdalan is the first Civilian Defender in the squadron and in the Air Force Security Forces Civilian Career Field’s history to complete this prestigious program. Nationally, fewer than one percent of law enforcement officers have the opportunity to attend the program.

Internationally known for its academic excellence, the National Academy offers ten weeks of advanced communication, leadership, and fitness training. Participants must have proven records as professionals within their agencies to attend. On average, these officers have 21 years of law enforcement experience and usually return to their agencies to serve in executive-level positions.

The 287th session consisted of one hundred and ninety-nine law enforcement officers from 46 states and the District of Columbia. The class included members of law enforcement agencies from 21 countries, four military organizations, and three federal civilian organizations. FBI Director Christopher Asher Wray delivered remarks at the ceremony.

“The opportunity to attend the FBI National Academy is an incredible accomplishment in and of itself for any Security Forces Defender.  Mr. Sacdalan also has the privilege of being an elite few civilian members of the Air Force to be selected to attend this prestigious course and absolutely crushed it!  We could not be prouder of him as well as look forward the insight and knowledge to more effectively operate with our inter-agency partners Allan brings back to the Fightin’ 5-0!  These skill sets are incredibly important to the fabric of base defense and law enforcement operations protecting the epicenter of space operations at Schriever and the greater Front Range area” Major Dayne Foote, 50th Security Forces Commander.

Mr. Sacdalan is the unit’s Deputy Director and Department of the Air Force Civilian Police Program Manager.  He expertly directs and manages an integrated active-duty security force and civilian police of 220 personnel.  He exercises personnel management activities (hiring, performance appraisals, awards, pay and leave, training and resources) and establishes, develops, and maintains effective working relationships with nine agencies.  Mr. Sacdalan is a retired Security Forces Commander.
