September 1, 2011
Want to find out first hand how the FBI works? Hear how the Bureau tracks down spies and terrorists? Learn how to collect and preserve evidence? See what it is like to fire a weapon and put yourself in the shoes of a Special Agent making a split-second, life-or-death decision?
If you are a leader in your community, you just might be able to do that and more––through attending the FBI Phoenix Citizens’ Academy.
Who attends? Business, community, civic, and religious leaders. You must be at least 18 years old (with no prior felony convictions) and must live and work in the area covered by the Phoenix field office.
Who teaches? Special Agents in Charge, their senior managers, and senior agent experts.
For how long? Classes generally meet 9 times (eight on weeknights and one on Saturday) for three hours each session. The Tucson classes will be held on eight consecutive Tuesdays beginning January 31, 2012 and ending March 20, 2012. The Phoenix classes will be held on eight consecutive Thursdays beginning February 2, 2012 and ending March 22, 2012. The Saturday “Range Day” will be scheduled in March. The class of 2012 will include 30 students from Phoenix and 20 in Tucson. Applications are due by November 1.
