Guest Blogger: What Do FBI Agents Really Do? Peter Klismet Gives Us The Scoop.

I am very pleased, once again, to introduce you to Peter Klismet, Jr. After two tours in Vietnam, Pete went on to spend the next 30 years of his life in Law Enforcement; 10 with the Ventura, CA Police Department and 20 with the FBI. In the FBI, he received additional specialized training in hostage negotiation and in criminal profiling. He was part of the very first group of field profilers. After retiring from the FBI in 1999, and receiving an award for Law Enforcement Officer of the Year, Pete turned to teaching. No surprise there, he holds two Masters Degrees and is very adept at sharing his knowledge. He was a Professor at two different colleges before recently retiring. He now runs a consulting business with his wife, Nancy. They provide criminal profiling and cold case services, as well as seminars and training classes. Pete is the author of “FBI DIary: Profiles of Evil.” Thank you, Pete, for joining us today.
