The FBI Citizens Academy program is designed to unite a diverse group of business and community leaders to learn about the FBI’s work in Oregon and around the world. Beginning September 23, 2015, the Portland Division is hosting a Citizens Academy class, which consists of six evening sessions and one weekday session.
Evening sessions cover a variety of topics, including international and domestic terrorism, counterespionage, cyber-crimes, violent crimes, organized criminal enterprises and legal matters, and offer participants a chance to meet and hear from members of the FBI Swat team as well as employees in the Bomb Tech program and Evidence Response team.
Applications are now being accepted for the Fall 2015 class. All applications must be submitted online. Applications are due no later than Wednesday, August 5, 2015.
