Lieutenant Shawn R. Pratt

Zachary Police Lieutenant Shawn R. Pratt recently graduated from the 281st Session of the FBI National Academy in Quantico, VA. Lt. Pratt has been with the Zachary Police Department since 1998 and has held numerous assignments, including traffic division, patrol division, and DARE Officer.

The FBI National Academy is the premier leadership program for law enforcement across the globe. Internationally known for its academic excellence, the National Academy offers ten weeks of advanced communication, leadership, and fitness training. Participants must have proven records as professionals within their agencies to attend. Lt. Pratt and two hundred and fifty-seven law enforcement officers were certified as successfully graduating on March 17, 2022. Lt. Pratt joins former graduates, Zachary Police Chief David McDavid, Zachary Police Assistant Chief Darryl Lawrence, Retired Captain Jay Sullivan, Retired Captain Bill Johnson, and Former Chief of Police Mike Corbin (deceased) as an alumnus to this prestigious program.
“We are proud to have another one of Zachary’s finest graduating from the FBI National Academy, and we hope other officers will be able to attend. Only one percent of the nation’s police officers are nominated and are allowed to experience this valuable training academy,” said Police Chief McDavid.
