Summary of Internship

I interned at the Bergen County's Sheriff Office in the Community Outreach division in Hackensack, New Jersey. As an intern I was in charge of receiving and making phone calls, making copies, making veteran certificates for the Armed forces, filing paperwork, and accompanying the officers when they went out to do various errands. During my time as an intern I learned a lot of lessons that can be useful and essential to my future. Interning at the Community Outreach unit has really opened my eyes to reality. Along with working at the office i was also able to take advantage of other programs, such as the Youth Citizen's Academy. The Youth Citizen's Academy was a very educational program that i was involved in that made my internship that much interesting. From my internship at the Bergen County Sheirff's Office i have been able to learn to make the best out of every experience because it could always benefit you and your future.
