LEXINGTON, S.C. – Lt. Jonathan Brock, assistant commander of the Lexington County Sheriff’s Department’s west patrol region, has graduated from the FBI’s National Academy in Quantico, Virginia.

“Jonathan’s completion of this premier law enforcement executive training program will benefit both his professional development and the Sheriff’s Department,” Lexington County Sheriff Jay Koon said. “The expertise and skills he acquired will help us continue to provide Lexington County residents with excellent law enforcement service.”

Koon said the FBI National Academy is a once-in-a-lifetime leadership and educational experience that less than 1 percent of the world’s law enforcement officers are able to attend.

“The National Academy gathers law enforcement leaders from around the world to learn and train together for 10 weeks, not only elevating their capabilities but also building relationships between agencies,” he said.

The program provides coursework in intelligence theory, terrorism and terrorist mindsets, management science, law, behavioral science, law enforcement communication and forensic science.

Brock joined the Lexington County Sheriff’s Department in 2012. He was assigned the assistant command of the county’s west patrol region in 2021. He previously served in the narcotics unit before holding the position of patrol sergeant.

The 288thsession of the National Academy consisted of men and women from 24 countries and 26 states.
