The FBI Citizens Academy is a stimulating program that gives business, religious, civic, and community leaders an inside look at the FBI. During the academy, students gain insight into the structure and operation of FBI field offices and resident agencies and learn the services the FBI provides to local and state law enforcement agencies. It is the goal of the FBI Citizens Academy to foster a greater understanding of the role of federal law enforcement in the community through frank discussion and education.
The next FBI Portland Citizens Academy will be held September 14 to October 9, 2022, with range day and graduation held on Friday, October 28, 2022. If you are interested in applying—or if you are a Citizens Academy graduate or past/present FBI employee who would like to recommend someone you know—please complete the nomination form and submit it according to the form guidelines.
