Alumni Association

Welcome To FBI New York CAAA


The FBI New York Citizens Academy Alumni Association is a community-based and supported organization, distinct and separate from the FBI. It is designed to promote a more informed and safer community through diverse service projects and by educating business, labor, media, medical, minority, government, education, religious, senior citizen, and community leaders in the State of New York and the New York City Metro Area in particular, about law enforcement, with particular emphasis on the mission, resources, and limitations of the FBI.

The FBI New York Field Office hosts one Citizens Academy per year in the New York Field Office (and periodically another class outside New York) that is approximately six weeks in length. Candidates must meet the following criteria:

  • Must be an experienced community, civic, religious, business leader or a media executive;
  • Must be 21 years old (with no prior felony arrests or convictions);
  • Must live or work with the jurisdiction of the FBI New York Field Office;
  • Must consent and pass a limited background investigation;
  • Must sign a non-disclosure agreement; and
