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.
The Future Law Enforcement Youth Academy (FLEYA) training program is an overnight camp in which students are chaperoned by sworn law enforcement and FBI employees. The chaperones chosen who will oversee the daily and evening events include Yale Police Department officers, FBI employees, and FBI National Academy Alumni. Each alumni officer will originate from the county that the students represent. This will act as a way to promote ongoing communication and networking between law enforcement and the students after the program ends.
Students receive specific classroom training and practical exercises in investigative forensics, use of cyber technology techniques for combating violent crime, counter intelligence, gang awareness, civil rights (hate crimes), and many more violations of state and federal law. This unique training will include classes with federal agents, assistant U.S. attorneys and state attorneys, local police, and judges.
The fourth annual FBI New Haven FLEYA for Connecticut high school students will be held July 14 - 20, 2019 on the Yale University campus. The deadline to apply is April 5, 2019.
