Lewis and Clark Community College and the FBI has extended the registration deadline for an upcoming academy at the school. The Future Agents in Training Academy offers students the opportunity learn about Bureau opportunities through both classroom and hands-on activities.

All forms needed for the application can be found on the community college's website. FBI Public Affairs Officer Brad Ware tells the Big Z this academy could help a young person decide on a career.

He says the FBI is much more than just the Special Agents portrayed on TV and at the movies, but those forms of media have been good for marketing law enforcement careers.
