Getting Here

I got my internship purely through searching about Police Departments that offered internships. I knew I wanted to intern in a place that could end up being a potential career choice for me, so applying to Police Departments around me just made a lot of sense. 

The Work

Completing this internship has shown me what it takes to have a career in law enforcement and has shown me many new skills that I can take into my academic career at the U. The skills I will take from the internship into my senior year are communication skills and the ability to adapt myself to many different and evolving situations. This internship has further proven to me that I am certain in my career goals of going into law enforcement and police work.
