DHS OIG SA Timothy Morris Receives Life Saving Award

At the FLETC/Glynco cafeteria during the lunch hour on 3/17/09, SA J. Laureano, Housing and Urban Development Office of Inspector General (OIG), San Juan, began to choke. According to several witnesses, he was unable to breathe for approximately 45 seconds, turned red and appeared to become nearly unconscious. SA Timothy Morris, Department of Homeland Security OIG, Chicago, observed SA Laureano in distress and applied the Heimlich maneuver, which caused the obstruction to dislodge. The actions of SA Morris were heroic and life saving. SA Laureano was checked out by the health unit and returned to class.

SAs Morris and Laureano, as well as several of the witnesses to the incident were enrolled in Inspector General Transitional Training Program 901. The Inspector General Criminal Investigator Academy staff commended the swift and effective response of SA Morris with an unprecedented IG Academy Life Saving award at IG-TTP 901 graduation on 3/19/09.

History of the IG Academy

The Inspector General Criminal Investigator Academy (IGCIA) was officially established at the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center (FLETC), Glynco, Georgia, in February 1994 per a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between the FLETC and the President's Council on Integrity and Efficiency (PCIE). The MOU acknowledged "the significant benefits of efficiency and effectiveness which are derived from a consolidated approach to training." In November 2000, The IG Criminal Investigator Academy was established in Public Law 106-422 "for the purpose of performing investigator training services for offices of inspectors general created under the Inspector General Act of 1978."

The Inspector General Reform Act of 2008 combined the two existing IG councils, the PCIE and the Executive Council on Integrity and Efficiency, into one statutory Council of IGs on Integrity and Efficiency (CIGIE) to be chaired by an IG. The mission of the CIGIE is to address integrity, economy and effectiveness issues that transcend individual agencies, and to increase the professionalism and effectiveness of IG personnel by maintaining one or more training academies. The CIGIE has established a Training Institute to further the CIGIE mission. The IGCIA is one of three academies within the CIGIE Training Institute.
