Criminology Alumni Receives Prestigious Internship

Katelyn Heron, who graduated this past spring from USF with degrees in psychology and criminology, has accepted an internship with the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center in Georgia for this summer. To apply for the internship Heron had to write an essay on her goals and objectives that the internship would help with, as well as receive a nomination from Lisa Landis, the Director of Student Support and Academic Services in the College of Behavioral & Community Sciences. In the past two years, three students from CBCS have been selected to intern with the FLETC; a great recognition for the university and program since it is a very competitive internship with only a few spots available. She will be spending half of her time working with an assigned agency on challenging projects and assignments, and the other half of the time taking lectures and labs with actual students of FLETC. She will be exposed to a variety of topics in the classrooms from Use of Force and Terrorism, to Interviewing Techniques and Surveillance. In addition to attending the same exact courses that most Federal agencies send their newly hired agents to, she hopes that the current and retired agents she meets will help to build her network within this special community of professionals.
