Federal Bureau of Investigation
Chicago Citizens Academy
Alumni Association


FBI Citizens Academy programs are engaging six-to-eight-week programs that give experienced business, religious, civic, and community leaders an inside look at the FBI. Classes meet in the evening at the FBI Chicago Field Offices. The mission of the FBI Citizens Academies is to foster a greater understanding of the role of federal law enforcement in the community through frank discussion and education. Candidates are nominated by FBI employees, former Citizens Academy graduates, and community leaders. Participants are selected by the special agent in charge of the FBI Chicago Field Office. To find out more about an FBI Citizens Academy in your area, contact the Outreach Professional at theFBI Chicago Field Office at ChicagoOutreach@fbi.gov.
