A 25-year law enforcement veteran, Fauquier sheriff’s Lt. Mark Jones graduated from the FBI National Academy on Friday, Dec. 14.
Fauquier sheriff’s Lt. Mark L. Jones on Friday graduated from the 274th session of the FBI National Academy at Quantico.

Part of the sheriff’s office command staff, Lt. Jones serves in the Civil Process/Court Security Division. A graduate of the Virginia Forensic Science Academy, he previously served in the Patrol and Criminal Investigations divisions during his 25-year career in law enforcement.

The 10-week program, which began Oct. 1, included coursework in intelligence theory, terrorism and terrorist mindsets, management science, law, behavioral science, law enforcement communication and forensic science. The FBI program seeks to improve the administration of justice in police departments and agencies at home and abroad and to raise law enforcement standards, knowledge and cooperation worldwide.

The FBI National Academy accepts U.S. and international law enforcement managers nominated by their agency heads because of demonstrated leadership qualities.

Training is provided by the FBI academy instructional staff, special agents and other staff members holding advanced degrees, many of whom are recognized internationally in their fields of expertise. Since 1972, academy students have been able to earn undergraduate and graduate credits from the University of Virginia, which accredits many courses offered.

A Fauquier County native, Lt. Jones and his family live in the Amissville area.

Sheriff Bob Mosier, Lt. Col. Jeremy Falls and the Jones family attended the graduation Friday, Dec. 14, at the FBI Academy in Quantico.

Lt. Jones became the sheriff’s office’s fourth graduate of the program, joining Lt. Col. Falls, Lt. Andy Marshall and Sgt. James Hartman.
