Book ‘em, Danno

I spent yesterday evening at 13th and Summit, in a conference room with a bunch of people getting introduced to the FBI’s Citizens Academy. Over 8 weeks, we’ll be learning about the work of the FBI, locally, nationally, and internationally. We’ll get briefed on major cases, and meet the people involved in preventing and solving them. We’ll get to visit the FBI shooting range, and fire weapons. We’ll see how the counter-terrorism, counter-intelligence and intelligence programs operate. At the end of the program, we get invited to the FBI headquarters in DC, and the FBI training facility in Quantico, Virginia (all on our own dime).

I even got a special badge with my picture on it to give me access to the parking lot. It doesn’t get much cooler than that.

I’m looking forward to learning a lot more about the reality of federal law enforcement, and getting to know my fellow students.
