The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) is a national agency dedicated to investigation federal crimes. Founded as a small team of special agents on July 26, 1908, the Bureau was first charged with enforcing the growing body of federal laws covering the United States as a whole. Almost from the beginning of its 100-year history, the Bureau has been the subject of legend and controversy. It has also evolved into a vast and sophisticated national law-enforcement agency. Whether as a federal crime-fighting force or a source of investigative support of local and state police forces, the modern FBI strives to embody its ideals of fidelity, bravery, and integrity. In these pages, you will follow the process-from application through graduation-of becoming an FBI special agent. Learn about the online application, the forms, and interviews. Try some sample questions from written exams. Then move on to the classrooms and firing ranges at the FBI Academy in Quantico, Virginia. Follow the training process through the streets, pool halls, and courtrooms of Hogan's Alley, the most crime-ridden town in America. Finally, learn about graduation, relocation, and beginning work as an FBI special agent.
