Students can also obtain internships. Previously, students have been placed at agencies such as the Suffolk County Police Department and the Suffolk County District Attorney’s Office to gain first-hand experience and apply it in the classroom. Students at our Brooklyn campus have interned at the Brooklyn District Attorney's Office, the New York Police Department and for the NYC Police Cadet Program.
