Planning & Preparing for an Active Shooter
 

The FBI Chicago Citizens Academy was established in the Chicago Division in 2003 as part of the Community Outreach Program. The purpose of the Academy is to establish and foster relationships and understanding between FBI representatives and the Chicago community. The success and local impact of this Academy has been tremendous. The Citizens Academy has given community, civic, religious and business leaders, as well as media executives, the opportunity to find out how the FBI "does business." Graduates have opportunity to join the Alumni FBICCAAA upon graduation.

The Chicago Division hosts one Academy per year and is six weeks in length. Candidates must meet the following criteria:

  • Must be a community, civic, religious, business leader or a media executive;

  • Must be 21 years old (with no prior felony arrests or convictions);

  • Must live or work with the jurisdiction of the Chicago FBI office;

  • Must consent and pass a limited background investigation;

  • Must sign a non-disclosure agreement;

  • SAC approval.
