State Police Intern

September 2019 - December 2019 Stow, MA
“I gained a greater understanding of what its like to be a law enforcement officer. I enjoyed observing behind the scenes of one of the most professional police departments in the country. My favorite part of my experience was getting to meet so many great Officers, Sergeants, and Lieutenants and working the bomb and arson detail at Gillette Stadium. Through this experience I got to see what safety measures are taken at every big event like a football game, and I got to meet Tom Brady!”
