The FBI is offering an inside look to members of the local community through the FBI Citizens Academy.
The citizens academy is a free nine-week course designed to showcase the day-to-day operations of the FBI to citizens and leaders in the community. The spring class starts March 1.
“This academy strengthens our partnerships with the local community through transparency,” said Samantha Madrid, FBI Albuquerque Field Office community outreach specialist. “Many people attend the academy and find things out about the FBI that they never knew.”
The academy, taught by FBI special agents, offers firearms training, counterterrorism training and more.
