Last month, James Crosby, LCCC’s director of campus safety, was elected as the second vice-president of the Rocky Mountain Chapter of the FBI National Academy Associates.

The FBI National Academy is a prestigious professional development course in which U.S. and international law enforcement leaders complete a curriculum of undergraduate or graduate courses at the FBI’s campus in Quantico, Virginia. Crosby graduated in the 164th session of the FBI National Academy.

In addition to representing the Wyoming and Colorado membership of the FBINAA, Crosby’s duties as a member of the Executive Board will include serving as chairman of the Nominating Committee, responsibility for marketing of the Association and Chapter, participation in the selection of training topics/training site selection, and coordinating the Association’s Youth Leadership Program. This program hosts a week long training event for high school students at the FBI Academy at Quantico.

Crosby will serve one year in this role, followed by a one-year term as the first vice-president before rotating to the office of president of the Rocky Mountain Chapter of the FBINAA.

Holding bachelor’s and master’s degrees in education, Crosby spent years as a classroom teacher. During that time, he became affiliated with local law enforcement, graduated from the Southwest Alabama Police Academy, and began work as a municipal public safety officer.

Having transferred to the Mobile County Sheriff’s Department as a deputy sheriff, he retired after 21 years of service before serving as the director of public safety and environmental compliance for Spring Hill College in Alabama before taking his current position at LCCC, where he has been for three years.

“I’ve always been committed to providing service to the community,” Crosby said. “It is my hope that in this elected position, I can further enhance the networking between institutions of higher education and federal, state, and local law enforcement to help provide a safe environment conducive to learning.”
