The Q1 FBIDVRCAAA Chapter Meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, February 21, 2024. All active Chapter members are invited and encouraged to attend!
We will review 2023 Chapter accomplishments as well as key initiatives in 2024. Then, back by popular demand, the FBI Denver Primary Defensive Tactics Instructor will be teaching us skills that include fundamental self- protection maneuvers followed by a firearms training simulation exercise.

Sextortion: A Growing Threat Targeting Minors
The FBI wants to warn parents, educators, caregivers, and children about the dangers of online activity that may lead to the solicitation and enticement of a minor to engage in sexual acts.
Sextortion involves an offender coercing a minor to create and send sexually explicit images or video. An offender gets sexually explicit material from the child, then threatens to release that compromising material unless the victim produces more. These offenders are seeking sexual gratification.
Financially motivated sextortion is a criminal act that involves an offender coercing a minor to create and send sexually explicit material.
Victims are typically males between the ages of 14 to 17, but any child can become a victim.
FBI Bank Robbers App
The FBI has long used publicity to enlist the public’s help in taking dangerous criminals off the streets—from wanted posters tacked to post office walls in decades past to the social media and web technologies of today.
The Bank Robbers website—and the new FBI Bank Robbers mobile app—continue that tradition by calling specific attention to unknown violent and/or serial bank robbery suspects who are wanted by the Bureau.
So use your smartphone in a crime-smart way—download the app and help protect your local community and the nation as a whole.
December was an exciting and busy month for active members of our Chapter! We give THANKS to those members and their friends/families who participated and/or volunteered for these events and express gratitude for your generosity!
First, Mark Michalek, Special Agent in Charge of the Denver FBI Field Office, joined our year-end Chapter meeting for a private dinner and awards presentation to six outstanding alumni (check out photos on the Alumni Awards page!). Later that evening, members and their guests enjoyed a hilarious evening of stand-up comedy performed by the renowned impressionist, Frank Caliendo, Jr.!
Next, 35 Chapter members and their families joined ranks with the FBI Denver Field Office and the Denver Children's Foundation for the 2023 Christmas for Kids event! Together, we picked up, drove, then took a record 200+ children shopping for gifts! Then we helped wrap the gifts so the children could surprise their families when they returned home! The event culminated with Santa's arrival by helicopter, and he gave each child a gift of their own. Oh, what a feeling!
Finally, 42 Chapter members plus their families joined dozens of others at Fairmount Cemetery as part of Wreaths Across America. After a touching remembrance ceremony represented by each branch of the U.S. military, we lay wreaths on each of the hundreds of headstones and grave markers of military veterans. To honor their service, each veteran's name was spoken allowed before a wreath was placed on their grave. We are grateful to these men and women who sacrificed for our country.
