FBI giving local teens inside look into operations

WASHINGTON (AP) - The FBI is giving area teenagers an inside look at its operations this week.

The bureau's Washington Field Office is hosting an annual program for high school students that gives them hands-on training and provides education about the office's different divisions.

Participants will also get to act out a bank robbery scenario, including interviewing witnesses, collecting evidence and making an arrest.

The FBI says the program, called Future Agents in Training, is the only one of its kind in the country.
