Mollie Halpern: Community leaders from across the country are graduating this season from FBI Citizens Academies.
I’m Mollie Halpern of the Bureau, and this is FBI, This Week.

Michael Kortan: The Citizens Academy offers a first-hand look at how the FBI operates. And at the same time, we get valuable feedback from members of the community who participate in the program.
Halpern: Special agents and other FBI experts teach the classes.
Kortan: The topics range from how we investigate cases to policies and ethics issues to the use of firearms.
Halpern: Lilliam Miller is a recent graduate of the Citizens Academy in San Juan. The business owner and mother of three says graduating is one of her life’s top accomplishments.
Lilliam Miller: It was the most amazing thing for me. Graduating from the academy, you do have a responsibility to be a better citizen.
