The FBI’s Community Outreach Program supports the Bureau’s investigative mission by working to address multiple interrelated societal problems—including crime, drugs, gangs, terrorism, and violence. Linking community service, prevention, and law enforcement is a national trend spurred by grass roots efforts around the country, and FBI employees have joined this movement, volunteering in a wide variety of community-related efforts.
In July 2021, the New Haven FBI Field Office and Yale University Police Department will be offering a youth program called Introduction to the Future Law Enforcement Youth Academy (FLEYA).
This one-day training will offer Connecticut students between the ages of 15 and 18 insight to future careers in law enforcement, along with classroom training on subjects including: Cyber Technology, Investigative Forensics, Domestic and International Terrorism, Civil Rights (hate crimes) and more. Information on the FBI Honors Internship Program will also be provided. Law Enforcement professionals from the FBI, U.S. Attorney’s Office, and Local Police Departments will provide instruction for this unique one-day training opportunity.
