The Cambridge Police Department today announced that Deputy Superintendent Robert Lowe has been selected and will be joining the FBI’s National Academy next week. Internationally known for its academic excellence, this prestigious 11-week educational program is designed for law enforcement officers from around the world. Deputy Lowe will be part of the Academy’s 271st class. 

Held at the FBI Academy in Quantico, Virginia, the program offers advanced communication, leadership, and fitness training for selected officers having proven records as professionals within their agencies. Training for the program is provided by the FBI Academy instructional staff, special agents, and other staff members holding advanced degrees, many of whom are recognized internationally in their fields of expertise.

“As a proud graduate of the FBI National Academy’s 227th class, I personally know how valuable this prestigious training will be for Deputy Lowe,” said Police Commissioner Branville Bard, Jr. “It is an honor to be selected for arguably the best law enforcement training a police executive could receive. We know Deputy Lowe will gain valuable experience and come back an even greater asset for the Department and the City of Cambridge.”

Lowe joined the Cambridge Police Department in 2001 and is the Commanding Officer for Day Operations and the Community Services Unit, which is comprised of the Youth and Family Service Unit (YFSU) and mental health, homeless, elder, and business outreach initiatives. He has spent the majority of his career in Operations and several years as a Criminal Investigations Unit Detective. 

He will become the fifth active officer on the Cambridge Police Department to participate in the FBI’s National Academy, joining Commissioner Bard, Superintendent Steven DeMarco, Deputy Superintendent Stephen Ahern and Deputy Superintendent Jack Albert.
