Former FBI Profiler Candice DeLong
To Speak at UW-Eau Claire's Forum

 MAILED:  March 11, 2003

EAU CLAIRE - Former FBI profiler Candice DeLong will speak Wednesday, March 26, at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire.

The Forum will present her address, titled "Special Agent: My Life on the Front Lines as a Woman in the FBI," at 7:30 p.m. in Zorn Arena. The formal presentation will be followed by a question-and-answer session and a reception. The program will be signed for the deaf and hard of hearing.

A 20-year veteran of the FBI, Candice DeLong worked on some of the toughest high-stakes criminal investigations of our time. She tailed terrorists, helped track the notorious Tylenol killer, and was one of three agents handpicked to mastermind the Montana hunt for the Unabomber. DeLong was the FBI's head field profiler in San Francisco, spearheading investigations into serial murders and sex crimes and serving as liaison to the bureau's world-famous Behavioral Science Unit at Quantico. As a member of the former Child Abduction Task Force, she lectured widely as an FBI spokesperson on such issues as protecting women and children and preventing child abuse.

Now a consultant for MSNBC, DeLong will discuss the drama and danger on the front lines of law enforcement, the art and science of criminal profiling, and the challenge of maintaining courage, humor and grace under fire.

Admission is $7 for the public, $5 for those 62 and older and UW System or Chippewa Valley Technical College faculty and staff, and $3 for those age 17 and younger and UW System or CVTC students. Tickets are available at the University Service Center in Davies Center and will be sold at the door.

Patrons may also charge their tickets to MasterCard or Visa when they order by phone. Call the University Service Center, (715) 836-3727 — or, outside the immediate Eau Claire area, call toll-free (800) 949-UWEC. A $3 handling fee will be added to all telephone charge orders.

The Forum is funded by the students of the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire and administered by the Activities and Programs office of University Centers and Programs.
