Office of the Attorney General, Saipan – Attorney General Edward Manibusan is pleased to announce the

The FBINA is a professional 10-week course of study for U.S. and International Law Enforcement Leaders,
which serves to improve the administration of justice in police departments and agencies at home and abroad,

prestigious academy and I am certain that he will improve not only his skills as an investigator but also his
personal and professional growth as a law enforcement officer. I extend my appreciation to the FBI for their
support and assistance in the nomination process and look forward to future partnerships with their agency.”
“The FBI is proud to send Chief Investigator Masayos to the FBI National Academy and represent the
Honolulu Division,” said FBI Special Agent in Charge Steven Merrill. “This program shows the great
partnership we have with the Commonwealth of Northern Marianas Attorney General’s Office as we continue
to strengthen our relationship with them.”
“I am grateful for the Attorney General’s nomination and support. I am excited at the opportunity to gain
valuable experience and knowledge that will effectively improve the enforcement of our laws and the safety
of our CNMI community,” says Chief Investigator Masayos.
