CCEDC Invites You to Go Inside the FBI


This Friday morning, Sept. 28, from 7:45-10 AM, the Chester County Economic Development Council will hold a breakfast briefing entitled “Inside the FBI: A Breakfast Briefing.”

FBI Special Agent Glenn Booth, a Chester County resident, will address the issue of human trafficking in the region, as well as share his experience on 9/11.

Agent Booth has been with the FBI for more than 20 years. He was first assigned to New York City from 1998 through 2003. Booth graduated from Waynesburg College in 1992 with a bachelor’s degree in history and a certification in secondary education. After earning a master’s degree in history from the University of Maine, he taught and worked in administration at the University of Arkansas.

In 1998, Booth joined the FBI in New York City, then transferred to Reno, Nev., where he worked on a variety of crimes from kidnappings to prison assaults.

Though it is hard to imagine, human trafficking does occur throughout Pennsylvania, including Chester County. In fact, PA Act 105 of 2014 gave Pennsylvania its first comprehensive legal definition of human trafficking and provided other tools to combat the crime.

According to the Pennsylvania Chiefs of Police Association, the Commonwealth began instructing local police officers on how to spot potential human trafficking victims in 2015. Assigned to the Philadelphia office, Agent Booth focuses on violent crimes against children and will discuss human trafficking in our region.

He will also share his story of being at the World Trade Center on 9/11. He was already onsite and beginning his investigation, when the first tower collapsed. Booth will explain how the FBI responded to the terrorist attacks on 9/11, detailing their minute-by-minute response plan following the first plane crash. He will also share the FBI’s response to the attacks in the months and years afterward and the FBI’s continued work to identify victims of the attacks.
