"While working toward my master’s, I interned at the Nassau County Police Department. I worked hands-on with detectives and intelligence analysts. It was a unique side to the industry, and I am extremely grateful for being able to be a part of it. I saw a lot of the technology and techniques that the department was using, which now helps me in my career as an online criminal research analyst."
