SUNY Geneseo's University Police Assistant Chief Richard Myers recently completed the FBI National Academy Associates training program. The FBI National Academy is a professional course of study for US and international law enforcement managers. Participants are nominated by their agency heads after demonstrating leadership qualities. Fewer than one percent of police executives in the United States are selected to attend the academy. The training has an academic component accredited through the University of Virginia. 

The 10-week program provides coursework in intelligence theory, management science, law, behavioral science, law enforcement communication, and forensic science. The program aims to improve the administration of justice in police departments and agencies and to raise law enforcement standards, knowledge, and cooperation worldwide.

In addition to the FBI National Academy, Myers recently completed the FEMA Emergency Management Basic Academy. Myers joined Geneseo's UPD in 2023. Before Geneseo, he worked for Buffalo State and the University of Buffalo's police departments.

UPD Chief Scott Ewanow completed the FBI training program in 2019.
