Oklahoma City Police Department Crime Scene Practicum


I am extremely thankful for the opportunity I was given to intern with OKCPD. I now know without a doubt that this is the job I was meant to do and it is something that I will be able to handle. It was a fear of mine that I wouldn’t be able to handle the death and sadness than can come with the job but because of the internship I know that I will be able to do it with the right mind set. I have gained experience throughout the course of this semester that will give me a much better standing when it comes time to apply for jobs. 

 The University of Central Oklahoma has changed the course of my life and I will forever be prideful to have attended this school. The Forensic Science program is one of the most prestigious in the country and I feel I have gotten to learn from some of the best in the game. I have built relationships with the people at OKPD and gained experience that I never imagined I would be able to while attending school. I have learned a great deal about ethics and techniques used while processing crime scenes and the grit that it takes to be successful in this line of work.”
