Give us a brief summary of your experience?

At the Baltimore County Police internship I worked with CIDs (investigators) as well as completed ride alongs with different officers from the stationed Precinct that helped me gain experience in one aspect of the field in which I am interested in pursuing as my future career. This also gave me the chance to speak with individuals already in the field which gave me knowledge through advice, make connections with others, and experience aspects of the job first-hand. Overall, this internship helped me to become a more competitive candidate for a Federal Agency when I apply in the near future.

How did this experience impact you academically?

This internship has allowed me to see and use course concepts from my studies in Criminology first-hand in a real life setting. In being apart of such an experience I am able to enrich my understanding of previous course concepts as well as learn new ones through the Department and its officers.

"This internship will help advance my career goals by adding practical experience to my résumé and will help make me a competitive candidate when applying to a Federal Agency paid internship or job in the future."

How will this experience impact your career goals?

This internship will help advance my career goals by adding practical experience to my résumé and will help make me a competitive candidate when applying to a Federal Agency paid internship or job in the future.

How has the College of the Liberal Arts helped you to find and/or succeed in this experience (e.g., adviser, faculty, staff, enrichment funds, etc.)?
