I collected some information from the web on FBI field office locations that I thought might be useful to some people in making decisions on FO rankings when the time comes. I've included in the first response to this thread below.

To view this information you can simply copy and paste in to Excel. If you aren't a proficient Excel user just follow these steps to get it in to a readable format.

1. Select Column A
2. Go to the "Data" Tab
3. Click "Text to Columns" in the top ribbon
4. Select Delimited then Next
5. Select "Other" and type in "/" under Delimiters
6. Click Finish

All of the data should now be split in to columns you can read more easily. As a note all of the data used is from the last year or two except FO employee numbers are from 2003.

Thank you for this, it’s very helpful! I would also like to know the most common types of cases seen at each FO. I realize most are a combination of types but it would still be interesting to know.

Yeah that would be cool to know. Each of the FO's has their own web page I pulled some info off of like RAs so possibly they have something about that as well.

I was going to add city population size as well so I'll update the data set whenever I do that. Open to suggestions on other data people think could be useful.

Amazing stuff! For anyone using mac and only have access to "numbers", paste the data into texteditor and save as a "XXXX.csv" file. Then open that file with numbers. Initially it'll only look half organized. The adjust settings bubble should pop up.

Once in it, unclick the comma in "separate values using:".
Then in the "customer delimiter" box type in "/".

Should be good to go.

To view this information you can simply copy and paste in to Excel. If you aren't a proficient Excel user just follow these steps to get it in to a readable format.

1. Select Column A
2. Go to the "Data" Tab
3. Click "Text to Columns" in the top ribbon
4. Select Delimited then Next
5. Select "Other" and type in "/" under Delimiters
6. Click Finish

All of the data should now be split in to columns you can read more easily. As a note all of the data used is from the last year or two except FO employee numbers are from 2003.



I did a lot of data-related work as a criminal intel analyst in a large city before I moved to my current location, so I consider myself a bit of a data nerd... I can appreciate the work you put into this! All of the info is helpful - thank you for putting the time into it!

Surprised at some of the size rankings. NYC is obvious, but places like San Diego larger than I thought. Nevertheless, the top 3 are heads and shoulders larger than everyone else. Crossing my fingers for a warm weather city when that opportunity comes.

It’s pretty old data for location populations. That may have changed a lot.

I too am hoping for a warm city that’s not terribly expensive.

Spoke to an agent who graduated a year ago. Says top 10 choice is most important as they try to place you in one of those places. They match the office with your skills, experience, and what they see during Q. Apparently every location is super tight on man power so I'm guessing the popular spots will fill up real quick. Personally, once I get past the fifth choice, I have no idea where I'd want to be.

If you like numbers 55.5% of agents got one of their top 3 preferred locations and 83.9% got one of their top 10 from FY 2016-2019. (pg 13 of the FBI "How to Apply" guide)

I knew someone in the Jan class of last year though and she got her 12th choice so always a chance you'll be in that 16% I guess.

I don't know how the other agencies are, but it does look like the FBI makes an effort in considering the agent's choices. Thanks for the info!

Anyone have any idea how likely it is a new agent gets sent to a satellite office out of Q? Do they give you that information when they give you your assigned field office at Q? This can make a pretty big difference in listing our preferred locations, and certainly when starting to look at where we are going to live after receiving our field office location. For example, If I am told during Q that my field office selection is Salt Lake City, I don't want my wife to start looking at houses, schools etc in Salt Lake if we are really going to end up at a satellite office in Kalispel, Montana. Also, my family would love to live in Rapid City, SD where there is a satellite office, but Minneapolis (the main field office that covers South Dakota) would be further down our list.

Thanks in advance for any insight.

I asked the same thing to an agent a few weeks back. I was told new agents get assigned to resident agencies right out of Q all the time. The field office will normally reach out to you at Q a few weeks after the field office assignments are assigned. It’s not until they speak with you that you’ll know if you’re going to the main FO or an RA.

I'd think the more metropolitan field offices are less likely to parse our new agents to RA? Just my guess though.

Great thread Cherokee. This info is really helpful. As an FYI, a significant amount of the previous class was assigned to NY field offices.

Is that based on hearsay? You wouldn't happen to have the breakdown from the class?

We were told directly by an agent here that quite a few were assigned to NY, but they have not given us a specific breakdown.

Does anyone know if once you have been told you FO location, If you will be set up with people in that area to help with places to live? For example if you are placed somewhere in a large city (LA,NY), for advice on best places to live? I’d love to be in LA (obviously will go wherever) but a city that large knowing where to live would be difficult. Thank you!
