Wyoming and Colorado FBI Denver citizen's academy is now open to applicants

You are cordially invited to apply for our 2019 FBI Denver Division Citizens Academies to be held in Denver, Colorado, and Casper, Wyoming.

Annually each FBI division, comprised of 56 field offices, hosts Citizens Academy for a select group of community members.

The purpose of the FBI Citizens Academy is to afford community leaders and outstanding civic-minded members of our community an inside look at the FBI over a structured 8-week course.

During each of the academies, community members will be introduced to the operations of the FBI Denver Division, to include in-depth discussions and hands-on demonstrations of investigative techniques utilized in both criminal and national security investigations, our intelligence program, SWAT operations, evidence recovery, hazardous materials and weapons of mass destruction incidents, hostage crisis negotiations, active shooter situations, child abduction rapid deployment (CARD) operations, art theft crimes national team, online safety and security tips, Victim Specialist and Child Advocate community assistance, Special Agent and Professional Staff career paths, defensive tactics and firearms demonstrations, and more.

The curriculum is similar to the traditional methods used at the FBI Academy in Quantico, Virginia, but is geared toward non-law enforcement participants.

Presentations are provided by FBI personnel with an open exchange of questions, observations, and concerns.

The objective of Citizens Academy is to foster a greater understanding of the FBI's role in our community through education and candid discussion.

Additionally, the two FBI Denver Division Citizens Academies are designed to enhance liaison between community members by fostering an awareness of how investigations are initiated and conducted.

Upon graduation, FBI Denver Citizens Academy graduates are invited to attend social gatherings and participate in community service events hosted by the FBI Denver Division and FBI Denver Chapter Citizens Academy Alumni Association (CAAA).
