Mr. Schiff: Your child can become an FBI Junior Special Agent. For instance, FBI personnel mentor fifth-graders near Phoenix, Arizona on many subjects.
Mr. Timmons: “Polygraph testing; behavioral analysis.”
Mr. Schiff: That’s John Timmons, teacher and administrator in the Sacaton School District at the Gila River Indian Community. He says students really enjoyed working a mock crime scene.
Mr. Timmons: “A hands-on class is when they work with the agents and support staff in the Evidence Response Team area.”
Mr. Schiff: Cipriano Ochoa is 11 and wants to be an FBI agent. And Cipriano says he helped find a friend’s book that was taken.
Mr. Ochoa: “One of my friends asked me who took his book and I was looking around, but it was just one of our other friends, and that was Marteen, because he wanted to see what it was.”
Guided by Mr. Timmons, 150 youngsters have graduated the Junior Special Agents program at Sacaton in the past 10 years. I’m Neal Schiff of the Bureau and that’s what’s happening at the “FBI, This Week.”
