The Federal Bureau of Investigation’s Sacramento Field Office announces its Spring 2018 FBI Teen Academy. They encourage high school juniors of 34 counties through out California to apply -the counties are based on FBI office locations and Madera and Fresno counties are included.
The full-day academy will be held on Friday, March 23, 2018, at FBI Sacramento Field Office headquarters in Roseville, Ca.
The FBI Teen Academy offers students a view into the FBI and its mission, values, investigations, and partnerships with local, state and federal law enforcement. Discussion topics may include cyber safety, terrorism, active shooter situations, cyber investigations, and civil rights investigations.
Activities may include simulated experiences with the FBI’s Evidence Response Team, Special Agent Bomb Technicians, and within the Firearms Training System (FATS) room. Students also engage in candid conversations about online communication and its risks as well as lifestyle choices required to be eligible for careers at the FBI with FBI personnel.
“The FBI Teen Academy helps youth better understand how we protect the American people and uphold the constitution. We also share how the decisions they make today may impact education and career options in the future,” said Special Agent in Charge Sean Ragan. “Our goal is to provide students with useful information and valuable experiences they can share with others upon returning to their home and school.”
Junior students interested in the free one-day program must log onto the FBI Sacramento Field Office's Community Relations web page to download an application. Students must submit and mail a completed application package. Packages must be received by mail, parcel delivery, or hand delivery at the FBI Sacramento Field Office headquarters no later than 4 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 22.
