TJC to host FBI diversity recruitment event Monday

The Federal Bureau of Investigation’s Dallas Field Office and East Texas Resident Agencies, will host a diversity recruitment event from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Monday, April 23, on the TJC main campus.

The event is free and open to all college students and qualified candidates who are seeking a career in the FBI.

Former FBI Special Agent Brent Chambers joined TJC as director of public safety in late 2017.

Since 2010, he had served as supervisory senior resident agent for the East Texas resident agencies where he oversaw all FBI investigations and operations across 30 counties and offices including Lufkin, Texarkana and Tyler.

He was responsible for all operations, cases and 52 personnel, as well as the Safe Streets Task Force, the High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area Task Force and the Transnational Organized Crime Task Forces. He oversaw all high-profile kidnappings, extortions and other federal violent crime cases.

Since joining TJC, Chambers has begun working with area law enforcement and first responders to make TJC a training hub for area law enforcement and first responders.

“We’re currently working on a new initiative with Tyler police and fire departments and the Smith County Sheriff’s office,” Chambers said. “In much the same way dual credit works for high school students, our students who are training to receive their certificate as a peace officer, EMT or fire fighter can gain credits that that will go toward an associate’s degree.”
