Summary of Internship

This internship provided me with a multitude of opportunities to contribute to a variety of projects that impacted policing along with the Bergenfield department. During my time at internship, I assisted in ride alongs, worked with the 911 operators, scored the departments firearms, and learned the basics of the law. I learned something new every week at internship, which makes me very excited to pursue this career in my future. My internship, unlike school, did not concentrate on all subjects, but the real world, what people do, commit, live, etc. This was an unforgettable experience for me as I hope to learn more about the criminal justice system and continue studying in college. This journey gave me an inside look on typical police work as well as getting to see the small things that the police officers do to help the community.
