Ladies! The FBI wants you to join their team

Local News

Have you ever wondered what it takes to be an agent with the Federal Bureau of Investigation?

Special Agent Crystal Bowen with the Salt Lake City FBI Field Office joined us in studio to answer some of your questions. Special Agent Bowen say right now they’re trying to encourage woman to join the program.

“Our agents are overwhelmingly male,” she said. “There are ten thousand or so male agents compared to two thousand or so female agents.”

For this reason next month the FBI is hosting an event geared toward professional women.

On Thursday, May 31st women 23-35 years old interested in a career change are invited to attend the seminar. “The goal of this event is to try and diversify our workforce,” Special Agent Bowen said.

Those interested in attending the seminar can email Melissa Adams at by May 4th.

You must be a U.S. Citizen to become an agent. A minium Bachelor’s Degree is also required.
