FBI Richmond Citizens
Academy Alumni Association

Welcome to the FBI Richmond
Citizens Academy Alumni Association

The FBI Richmond Citizens Academy Alumni Association was born in 1993 of an FBI initiative called the Phoenix Initiative. The FBI since its inception had developed a well-earned reputation for solving crimes and bringing high profile criminals to justice, but it had also become a somewhat mysterious organization that many actually feared because of its secretive nature and necessary activities.

The Phoenix Initiative was designed to foster a partnership and friendship with the general public. The premise was simple. A group of interested citizens would, after passing certain background checks, be given a multi-week class on the inner workings of the FBI. This became known as the FBI Citizens Academy and was specifically designed to…

  • Increase public awareness
  • Project a positive image for the FBI
  • Identify crime issues in the community
  • Develop a better understanding of the community
  • Provide education and improve overall quality of life

In short the members of the FBI Richmond Citizens Academy Alumni Association bring the FBI and the community together, and give back to the community.
