Company/Organization: Bergen County Investigation
Mentor(s):Mrs. Lori Swiston and Lieutenant Davis
Topic of Internship
The Sheriff’s department is made up of many different units. Every one of these units have there own type of special work that they do. The Bureau of Criminal Investigations includes the Crime Scene Unit and Detective’s Unit. Both of these units work inside the same building. The detectives in this building work with local town and city law enforcement. Because they have advanced technology, much crime evidence from local towns and cities of Bergen County are sent here to be tested. They have also worked to solve crimes with the NJ State Police.
Summary of Internship
As an intern my responsibility consisted of mostly warrants and working with the Detective Unit. I got the chance to see every part of the building and learn about the different tasks they each perform. I was also able to see other units and divisions working outside the BCI building such as the K-9 Unit and the Correctional Division.
