On Friday, October 26, 2018, 16 Korbel students in the International Security Master’s Degree and Homeland Security Certificate Program who are enrolled in Dr. Ben Gochman’ s graduate course, Introduction to Homeland Security (INTS 4730), visited the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Division Field Office in Denver, Colorado.

In this post-9/11 world, FBI Denver continues to tackle a wide variety of national security threats and Federal crimes—from terrorism to cyber- attacks, from healthcare and investment fraud to illegal gambling enterprises, child pornography, and gang activity. With new tools and capabilities, FBI Denver is committed to continuing its work to defend the people and protect the nation. 

Korbel Homeland Security student’s visit included a question and answer session with Assistant Special Agent-in-Charge (ASAC) Michael Nordall who spoke about the FBI’s role in Counterterrorism, Criminal Investigations, Counterintelligence, Cyber Crimes and FBI career opportunities. 

Highlights of the tour included visiting the FBI armory and meeting with the FBI Bomb tech with his robot. A special thanks to Special Agent Charles LeFrace of the FBI Evidence Response Team (ERT) for organizing 4 stations to visit including Bullet Trajectory, HAZMAT Response Team, Explosive Device Evidence Collection, and Fingerprinting. This was one of the highlights of the tour!
