The FBI Academy is the Federal Bureau of Investigations's law enforcement training and research center located near the town of Quantico in Prince William County, Virginia. Operated by the Bureau's Training Division, it was first opened for use in 1972[citation needed] on 385 acres (1.6 km²) of woodland,[2] which is not available for public tours.

In addition to training new FBI agents at the facility, the Training Division also instructs special agents, intelligence analysts, law enforcement officers, Drug Enforcement Agency agents, and foreign partners.[3] The Academy provides several training programs, including Firearms, Hogan’s Alley (a training complex simulating a small town), [4] Tactical and Emergency Vehicle Operations Center (TEVOC), Survival Skills, and Law Enforcement Executive Development.[5]

The academy occupies 547 acres within Marine Corps Base Quantico.[6]
