LCPD officer graduates from FBI Academy


Another member of the Lake Charles Police Department recently graduated from the FBI Academy in Quantico, Virginia. Sergeant Gary Sonnier attended the 10-week academy and took courses in leadership, public speaking and forensics.

Sonnier said it was a once in a lifetime opportunity that put him touch with resources and officers from all over the country.

"I'm in a fraternity of 17,000 people now, where I can reach out to those guys any time -- day or night and they will drop what they are doing and help me. But it's incumbent upon me to when if they call me to drop what I'm doing and help them," said Sonnier.

Sonnier has more than 28 years in law enforcement. He currently serves as the assistant director to the Combined Anti-Drug Task Force.
