Two Captains with the Maui Police Department recently graduated with the 258th and 259th classes at the FBI National Academy in Quantico, Virginia.

Sterling Kiyota and Ricky Uedoi were among the law enforcement officers who graduated from the 11-week sessions conducted in December 2014 and March 2015 respectively.

The academy features advanced investigative, management and fitness training for selected officers.

On average, participants have 19 years of law enforcement experience and usually return to their agencies to serve in executive-level positions, according to a Department of Justice/FBI report.


Since its inception in July of 1935, the FBI National Academy has hosted 48,118 graduates.  Of that number, an estimated 16,683 are still active in law enforcement work.


Kiyota was promoted to the rank of Captain on March 16, 2014, and currently is assigned as the commander of the Lahaina Patrol Division.  Uedoi was promoted to Captain on February 1, 2015, and is now assigned as commander of the Molokaʻi Patrol Division.
