Tuesday, during the regular meeting for the Rotary Club of Los Alamos, FBI Media Coordinator Frank Fisher spoke of the importance of engaging the public in helping to keep criminals off the street.
“We’re very proud of our story … we work very hard, but as J. Edgar Hoover said, ‘We can’t do anything without the help of the American people,’” Fisher said. “Let us know if something seems suspicious or just doesn’t seem right … if you see something – say something.”
Fisher has been the media coordinator for the FBI in Albuquerque since August 2010. Besides advising FBI management on media matters, his duties include community outreach, congressional liaison, back-up field photographer, serving on the FBI Evidence Response Team, and working on EEO and diversity issues.
Before joining the FBI, Fisher was an assistant metro editor at the Sun-Sentinel newspaper in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., for four years, and spent 16 years writing and editing for The Associated Press wire service in various posts around the country. He also is a veteran of the U.S. Marine Corps and U.S. Army.
“I have the best job in the world,” Fisher told the Rotarians gathered Tuesday at the Los Alamos Golf Course. “Never since the military have I felt this sense of teamwork and this sense of importance of the mission – to keep people safe.”
