FBI San Diego Seeking Nominations for 2024 Citizens Academy

The FBI San Diego Field Office invites community members to experience a behind-the-scenes look at how the Federal Bureau of Investigation investigates crimes and national security threats to our community by applying to the 2024 FBI San Diego Citizens Academy.

The mission of the FBI Citizens Academy is to foster a greater understanding of the role of federal law enforcement in the community through frank discussion and education.

Classes for the program will be held Tuesday evenings from 5:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. March 5, 2024, to April 22, 2024. During the eight-week academy, students gain insight into the structure and operation of FBI field offices and resident agencies and learn about the services the FBI provides to local and state law enforcement agencies.

Attendees represent a diverse blend of multiple business sectors, community, academic, and religious leaders who are essential to developing an ambassador group for the field office to represent in the community we serve and live within.

Nominations for the 2024 class may be submitted by past and/or present FBI employees, Citizens Academy graduates, or any individual wishing to nominate themselves. The deadline for nominations is November 13, 2023. Please visit fbi.gov/sandiego for more information about the Citizen’s Academy and the nomination process. Questions about the Citizens Academy should be sent to FBI San Diego’s Community Outreach team at SD_Outreach@fbi.gov.
