Selections of the final candidates for the Year 2023 class are to be determined by the field office.
There are three levels in the process to be invited to be a part of the next FBI Citizens Academy Class:
1. Each candidate fills out a nomination form.
2. If you are accepted through the nomination phase, you will be invited to complete an application.
3. If you are accepted through the application phase, you will be asked to complete fingerprinting
At the conclusion of the program, graduates are encouraged to join the FBI Phoenix Citizens Academy Alumni Chapter (FBIPCAAA) for the purpose of strengthening relationships and improving understanding between the FBI and the community. Graduates, while not official spokespersons for the FBI, may be called upon to share their understanding of the role of federal law enforcement, specifically the FBI.
