A message from the FBI Baltimore Field Office Community Outreach Specialist, Marvella Gray:

We are pleased to announce that the Baltimore Field Office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation is hosting our 24th Citizens Academy. The Academy is a multifaceted tool to accomplish several important things: providing education and awareness of FBI operations and jurisdictions; constructing firm relationships with community leaders; and enhancing the Community Outreach Program through continued dialogue and interaction with the community itself. The class consists of community business, civic, media executives, and religious executives/leaders in the Maryland and Delaware areas.

The sessions will be held on eight consecutive Tuesdays from September 25 through November 13, 2018 (6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.). The Range Day date has not been set. The graduation is on November 13, 2018. If you can’t attend, we would like you to nominate an executive member of your staff.

During these sessions, substantive presentations are made by FBI instructors regarding various investigative programs including Terrorism, Violent Crime, Human Trafficking, Active Shooter, Public Corruption, Civil Rights, Cyber Crime, Counterintelligence, Forensics Overview and an Interactive Demonstration, and Recruitment/Hiring Initiatives. The range session will be held at the firearms range where you will view weapons of mass destruction and SWAT demonstrations. In addition, you will participate in a firearms exercise.

Successful completion of the academy requires your attendance at all sessions. If you wish to attend the academy, please complete the application online at: https://forms.fbi.gov/citizens-academy-application-baltimore/view. The deadline for applications is August 10, 2018.
