Police Student Internship – Riverhead

Leave a comment

The most important thing a student in college can do is get an internship. I wish I would have done internships at every opportunity. No one cares what you learn in the classroom, everyone wants experience. Here is an internship that was passed along my desk and I wanted to make sure it got out there to people who could find it useful:

Riverhead Police Department Student Intern Program

RIVERHEAD, July 31, 2009 — Supervisor Phil Cardinale notes the success of the Riverhead Police Department’s Student Intern Program. For over 5 years the Department has participated in hosting volunteer interns from local colleges. The program helps to fulfill the students’ degree requirements. Interns are assigned to the Police Department for approximately 100 hours and a special program is tailored to meet individual interests. While working at headquarters, the assignments are usually clerical, but once assigned to the different divisions, such as Detectives, Juvenile Aid Bureau, Court, Communications and Patrol, they obtain more hands-on experiences. Occasionally, their shift will vary to include evening rides with patrol officers.

Cardinale stated, “This program accomplishes two great objectives. The Town assists the training of citizens as they prepare for careers while benefitting from the assistance provided by the participants. I congratulate Chief David Hegermiller and his staff for their efforts which have made the program a success.”

Chief Hegermiller noted, “All interns have reported positive experiences to their respective schools and are very happy to have served with the Riverhead Police Department. The program has been successful in exposing students to law enforcement on a ‘hands-on’ basis and in establishing strong bonds between the Department and our local colleges.”

Keep Doing Good

I could really care less about what is “good” and “bad”. I don’t think about morals and religion. I never try to do anything other than what it is or what I get out of it. This probably applies to those ultra-givers too, but they get some sort of pride or self-worth by giving to charities.

I don’t give money to charities. I know people working in non-profits, and they make tons of money. Who exactly is making no profit? Also, I don’t want MY money being mismanaged and spent on frivolous things. I would much rather give my time and help to something than my money. I need my money to make more money. Maybe when I die. If I die.

Love Barnes and Nobles. Magazine section. Its like candyland for your head. A few months ago, I found a magazine that grabbed me. Every article was interesting to me. How different companies are connected, where money is spent, random people bios, playpump water system in africa, cool fun photos… Literally, every article was worth of a read. This hasnt happened since my friend turned me onto Maxim Magazine when I was a freshman in college. (I’ve moved on since then(to esquire)). The next day, I realized what the magazine was about, and its connection to the title.

GOOD Magazine is a magazine all about. For me its all about finding things that fit. I always try to find solutions no matter what I am doing. I love getting gifts for people because I like to find what fits them the most – what they will need or like the most. This should be a whole post unto itself… Magazines like this see solutions and let you know about it. It inspires you to put help solve the world. Thats what I get out of it.

Heres a great idea how to save the world doing nothing. Ripple.org is a website where they take the profits from advertising and they give it directly to a cause of your choice. One instance won’t make much, but if you make their site your homepage…. This will add up! Great idea. might as well, it doesn’t hurt.

2 more ways to do good. Ripple your homepage. and read GOOD.
