Miami, like each of the FBI’s local field offices, has a community outreach program that complements and strengthens our many efforts to protect you, your businesses, and your families in concrete ways through a range of activities and initiatives.
Our recent activities include:
We presented our 2012 Director’s Community Leadership Award to the Asian American Advisory Board
Among our other ongoing efforts:
Meeting with minority groups and civic organizations to talk about what the FBI can do with them and for them and hosting town hall meetings as needed to dialogue on key issues;
Sending our special agents and others from the FBI into schools, businesses, and civic meetings to expalain emerging crime and security threats and to provide specific advice on how to prevent being victimized by these threats;
Supporting the graduates of our Citizens’ Academies, who often band together in local alumni chapters to create crime prevention programs and other initiatives that benefit communities.
Serving on committees and boards for businesses, schools, community groups, and social and health services and launching drives to bring food, gifts, and toys to the less fortunate during the holidays and other times of the year; and
Encouraging citizens to step forward to report crime and serve as witnesses in court.
The Miami Community Outreach Program is interested in impacting our local communities. We feel that this can be accomplished through such initiatives as the Junior Special Agent Program, career days, office tours, and assisting local community coalitions in their duties. Give us the opportunity to work with you, and together we can make a difference.
