Perrye Turner

Special Agent in Charge

I am honored to have been assigned as the Special Agent in Charge for the FBI Houston Field Office. I am pleased to know the FBI Houston CAAA is growing and continuing its interaction with and support for the FBI. The events you have planned will add to the knowledge and understanding gained from attendance at the FBI Citizens Academy. I look forward to addressing the group to provide an update on the FBI and our priorities in the Houston Field Office. Thank you again for your interest in the FBI and serving as our Ambassadors.

FBI Citizens Academy

The Citizens Academy is a method used by the FBI and law enforcement agencies around the country to engage the community. Held once a year in Houston and also the Beaumont, Bryan, Corpus Christi, and Texas City, Texas resident agencies, the Citizens Academy gives community leaders, business professionals, religious leaders, and other citizens an inside look at the FBI and its operations. The program is seven to eight weeks where participants get the opportunity to meet the men and women of the FBI and gain an appreciation for the job they do. If you wish to be considered for this program, please contact the FBI at outreach.houston@fbi.gov.
