Vicksburg Police Investigator Mario Grady has completed the Certified Instructor Program at the Mississippi Law Enforcement Officer’s Training Academy.
Grady, a 12-year law-enforcement veteran, began his career as a campus police officer at Hinds Community College in Raymond in 2007. He has since served as a Warren County sheriff’s deputy, an undercover agent with the North Central Narcotics Task Force, a constable and most recently, as a member of the Narcotics Enforcement Team for the Vicksburg Police Department.
The CIP class is a grueling 400 hours of classroom training that lasts for over five months. The program covers techniques in an established curriculum to provide the overall skills to investigators for them to do their job in the best way possible. The class is taught in two-week intervals so law enforcement agencies do not have investigators absent from their duty post for an unreasonable period of time throughout the year while completing the program.
Twenty five law enforcement officers from across the state participated in the program with Grady the only one from Vicksburg and Warren County.
Please join us in congratulating Detective Mario Grady in this momentous accomplishment.
