The Law Enforcement Communication Unit has two primary responsibilities:
1) training National Academy students and FBI New Agents and
2) publishing the FBI
Law Enforcement Bulletin, the most widely read law enforcement
publication in the world.
Within the framework of this mission, unit instructors conduct
a wide variety of training. Courses for the National Academy
include classes in interview/interrogation, instructor development,
public speaking, media relations, contemporary issues in law
enforcement, and effective writing. For New Agents, the concentration
of training is on interviewing, informant development, and field
office communications. Unit personnel also participate in supervisory
and management training programs, in-services for onboard personnel,
and field police training programs.
Law Enforcement Bulletin is a monthly publication with
an estimated readership of 200,000. A one-year subscription to
the Bulletin may be obtained by calling the U.S. Government Printing
Office at: phone 202-512-1800, or fax 202-512-2250. Subscription
costs for domestic and foreign delivery vary. The Bulletin is
distributed to both domestic and foreign law enforcement agencies
and professionals in the criminal justice field to present information
on a wide range of issues facing the law enforcement community.
