Spotlight: SID college relations program

In 1995, BWC’s Special Investigations Department (SID) created its college relations program to promote the study and practice of criminology, criminal justice, law enforcement and public administration. On college and university campuses throughout Ohio (and beyond), SID staff members have shared with students, faculty and staff members our department’s results and exchanged insights on how to further combat crime. SID supervisors have also offered to furnish practical work experience to the most qualified students.

Since the inception of the program nearly 20 years ago, SID has recruited, selected, oriented and trained more than 300 paid interns and unpaid externs. Most of the externs elected to earn course credit for their practicums with our special investigations units (SIUs). Whether they have been interns or externs, the dedicated graduates of our college relations program have humbled us with favorable feedback. However, we know that the credit and the accolades go to them. Their careers are testament to their professionalism. Many have gone on to become officers, criminal investigators, special agents, analysts, digital forensic analysts, assistant special agents in charge and special agents in charge.

In the coming weeks, we will be featuring a four-part series that highlights SID’s college relations program. We will describe the four types of college internships and externships we offer, profile graduates of our program, recognize current SID college interns and externs and list current vacancies. Stay tuned for part one of the series, which outlines the four types.
