You’ll also have opportunities to become a Technically Trained Agent or part of our Computer Analysis Response Teams — our most elite teams that provide technological services to meet unique investigative needs in operational environments.
You can expect continued specialized training once onboard and you will work on some of the Bureau’s most complex cases. The scope and scale of our investigations provide unique challenges unlike anything you could work on in the private sector. Your ultimate mission: to protect the American people and uphold the Constitution of the United States.
