enforcement. Interns will experience firsthand the duties of police officers in the neighborhoods, on patrol, in special

learn about the scope and operations of a large active metropolitan police department, make valuable connections,
shadow officers and work on specific tasks and projects that will provide challenging learning opportunities. This is an
