News Alderman, Chief of Police attend FBI training academy

Franklin Alderman and mayor-elect Bob Scott (left) and Franklin Police Chief David Adams (right) attended the North Carolina FBI National Academy Associate's Fall Training Seminar in Asheville, Friday, where Daniel Linskey, Superintendent in Chief of the Boston Police Department (center) conducted a training session on how the Boston Police handled the 117th Boston Marathon terrorist bombing.

Linskey was the on-scene commander for the bombing and hunt for the bombing suspects. Linskey talked about lessons learned, how the bombing scene was secured and evidence gathered and the information amassed that led to the arrest of one suspect and the death of the other in a gun battle. The pressure cooker bombs left three dead and 264 injured.

Linskey told officers from across the state about the logistics of handling the dead and injured, handling large crowds and how different agencies worked together following the bombing and capture of the remaining suspect.

Scott is a graduate of the 205th session of the FBI National Academy and Linskey a graduate of the 243rd session.
