It's a fact: the FBI can only conduct investigations
and protect the American people from crime and acts of extremism
if it has the support and understanding of the American
people. That's why the Special Agents in Charge of each
of our 56 field offices work so closely with their communities
and community organizations.
So what happens when these Special Agents
in Charge get such tremendous support from people in their
communities that they want to specially recognize them?
They nominate them for a Director's Community
This special award, presented on behalf of
the Director of the FBI, was formally created in 1990 as
a way to honor individuals and organizations for their efforts
in combating crime, terrorism, drugs, and violence in America.
We invite you to visit your local
field office website for details on the program in your
area, but we would like to capture here the names and organizations
of the people who have most recently been recognized around
the country for their service above and beyond the call
of duty to help keep America and its kids safe.
