Nishita Maliek will have the chance to get an inside look at the FBI operations and learn more about federal law enforcement.

FBI Citizens Academy programs are engaging six-to-eight week programs that give business, religious, civic, and community leaders an inside look at the FBI.  Classes meet in the evening at FBI field offices around the country.  The mission of the FBI Citizens Academies is to foster a greater understanding of the role of federal law enforcement in the community through frank discussion and education.  Candidates are nominated by FBI employees, former Citizens Academy graduates, and community leaders.  Participants are selected by the special agent in charge of the local FBI field office. 

"When I was notified that I was accepted into this Academy, I was so taken and honored," Nishita Maliek said.  "It seems that the FBI wants a very diverse group of individuals to be a part of this program and learn more about what the FBI does," she said.
