Responses will be minimal as we are flooded with these types of request. Go to a local cop shop and they will assist you. It will be necessary to put forth some effort on this assignment.

Yes, you do. Take some of the time you are watching TV and pay a visit to the local cop shop. I know you can do it.

michaelphonenumber - UD is putting it nice.


Advertising in cyberspace for a sworn officer to be interviewed cold  so you can complete 'homework' is goofy. 


Get real.  Get off your rump, pick up the phone and do the work.

Actually you do have time. School is important. I was in the same boat completing my BS Degree and had an assignment to interview police managers. I could have picked up the phone however. conducted the interviews in person. Trust me you do have the time.

Well Mr. Michael, if your homework it to interview a retired or current offers, then take some time from your at home time doing home and go interview someone....If you perpare your questions a head of time it will cut down on the time you are interviewing someone...There is a lot of ways to have the time to do an interview...Like Uncle Dennis said you do have the time....

UncleD I don't understand why you all don't want to cooperate with this person, maybe he doesn't realize that the Internet is filled with armchair commandos that could claim to be who they aren't. He also may be miles and miles from the closest copshop which could cause time problems for him.

This.  What I mean when I say advertising in cyberspace is 'goofy.' 


Many times, I could have interviewed cops over the phone once arrangements were made by calling the department.  I chose to meet them instead.  I even parlayed some work I did for the Mayor into his asking the Chief to agree to an interview, then, on the advisement of my prof, who said not to trouble him, didn't use the entree. 


Big deal.


The cops I interviewed were relaxed and frank.  Each one gave me a viewpoint I could query the others about. 


Nobody's cornered the market on being busy.  You go to college, you figure this stuff out.  It means weaning off the internet and getting off your rump.  Walk away from the keyboard and figure it out.

That's right.......I could claim to be LuLu...........or how 'bout this one.......LuLu could claim to be me.


Bet Snarly B has a field day with this one........but no one could pull off claiming to be the Snarly one except the Marly one.

But apparently you have the time to be on the internet and argue your point which would indicate that yes, you do have the time and therefore get off your rump as it has been nicely put and go to your local police department, sheriff's department or highway patrol / state police department.  Good for you that you are a good son to help your mother while still going to school and working your internship.  We all had to do it the same way...... no internet allowed.  And for the record, not that I need to prove anything to you, I had to do it while my mom was dying from cancer.  So get off your hump and stop your complaining and do your work the way you are supposed to do it.

I just do not understand the purpose of beating up these kids who ask for help.  In today's world, using the internet as a tool to do these types of interviews is just smart!  It saves time and it is convenient for both persons involved.  Going to a cop shop is not always easy.  Technology is our friend, why not use it!  Why give him such a hard time for asking for help and doing it the quickest way possible?  He is trying to better himself by completing school...he will get plenty of face to face time w/ cops when he begins the interview process.  Plus, maybe, he doesn't even want to be an officer....he is just trying to pass a class.  Nothing wrong w/ that either.

While you have a point, as I pointed out, you never know who you are talking to unless it is face to face or at least a phone call to the cop shop if you are that busy. On the Internet I could be Jack the Ripper and you would never know and with that the interview would certainly be tainted by someone claiming to be an active or retired LEO but that is just my point of view.


By the way, can I assume the you are a P.O. for adults or are you an ADULT P.O. begging me to ask if they have a Minor P.O.

You would be correct; I am a PO for adults and also an adult PO!  LOL       Although, proving your point even more, I might be neither.  :-)

Michael,


I am quite familiar with NY Schools.


Since you are from L.I.,  I'll assume you are attending L.I.U? Or, perhaps SUNY @ Stony Brook? If L.I.U. probably the Post?


You could also be attending NYU or CUNY? In the City?


I am just trying to assess the quality requirements of your "paper", based on the caliber of the school.


As uncledennis pointed out to you, responses are likely to be minimal, using this method.


So, I have an idea that may work for you: Why don't you sign up to ride with a cop? The information, experience and inside you will get from that ride are far beyond what anyone here could potentially tell you. Moreover, since you are taking Criminal Justice classes I assume your Major or at least your Minor would be related to that field.


Hence, that experience would help you not only with any upcoming paper(s) but also, -AND MOST IMPORTANT-  when you actually joint the work force.
