SO 473 Internship in Crime & Delinquiency Studies


Emporia Police Department

Combining ride-alongs, training and the compilation of the annual report the semester long internship provided an in-depth look at the functions, duties and culture of law enforcement offices in Kansas. During this period I completed over 130 hours of ride-alongs with the officers, observing all three shifts. We worked accidents, comforted the frightened, spoke to children, participated in pursuits and made arrests. I also had the opportunity to participate in an Active Shooter Training activity. My training in information was adapted to compile the Emporia Police Department annual report. This involved gathering all the separate reports, using raw statistics to create the graphs and submitting it to the chief's office. Additionally I participated in several training sessions about topics pertaining to police work taught by the officers including:

DUI and Standardized Field Sobriety Tests Crime Scene Photography, Evidence Collection and Preservation
Fingerprinting Polygraph
Crime Scene Investigation Special Response Team Training
Dispatch procedures Traffic Procedures
