If you're a high school student between 15 and 18, the FBI is looking for you.
Community outreach specialist JoAnn Benson is casting a wide net into Bridgeport and all of western Connecticut.
She says the bureau is hosting a one-day introductory program, called Future Law Enforcement Youth Academy, this summer.
"This is a unique program that's offered to high school students and it's going to give students a look at the inside of the FBI, along with careers in law enforcement," Benson says. "Classes will be taught by law enforcement professionals from the FBI, local police Departments and the U.S. Attorney's office."
You have to be a high school student and Connecticut resident to be eligible. Students can sign up here.
