 Hello all! My name is Nikki Coyle and I live near Tampa, Fl. This is my first post so I'm just feeling my way through this. Currently, I am a full time student and I will be graduating with a Bachelors in Applied Science in Public Safety Administration in May 2014. In 2012, I received my Associates in Science in Crime Scene Technology. I am completely new to the field of law enforcement and I am fascinated by all that I have learned thus far. I am currently looking for an internship to get my foot in the door. Although, I do seem to be having some trouble locating an agency that will hire someone straight out of college with no experience. I guess what I'm looking for here is to see if anyone has any techniques I could utilize in obtaining an internship. Specifically, I would like to be a crime scene investigator but I decided to get my bachelors to learn about the managerial side of public safety protocols. I am a fast learner and eager to get my feet wet!

Greetings Nikki, welcome to PL.  Unless you find and agency that uses civilians in their CSI you would have to look at becoming and officer and then moving into CSI that way.  A lot of agencies have civilianized their CSI, so I'm sure Florida has at least a few out there.  I've been a CSI for 17 years and its been a great ride.  Good luck and congratulations on your upcoming graduation...

Welcome to PL from the midwest.  Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, I think i would rather live in a swamp than feel like I'm living on the edge of an incipent ice age.  I'm dreaming of a green Christmas.


I would check your criminal justice or whatever dept your are in to see if they have internships available for their CJ students if you haven't done that already, I know some colleges do that.

Thank you all for the warm wishes and open arms of acceptance! And a special thank you to csiguy and cedardale for the feedback! I'm checking out every possible angle at this point. I hope to move to Colorado at some point when I complete an internship here in Fl. So perhaps it will be a little easier going to find work there. Hope everyone has a great day!
