Welcome To FBICCAAA
The FBI Chicago Citizens Academy was established in the Chicago Division in 2003 as part of the Community Outreach Program. The purpose of the Academy is to establish and foster relationships and understanding between FBI representatives and the Chicago community. The success and local impact of this Academy has been tremendous. The Citizens Academy has given community, civic, religious and business leaders, as well as media executives, the opportunity to find out how the FBI "does business." Graduates have opportunity to join the Alumni FBICCAAA upon graduation.
