Kennedy Harmon interns at Ponca City PD
Kennedy Harmon, a sophomore criminal justice major at Northern Oklahoma College from Ponca City, recently had the opportunity to participate in an internship with the Ponca City Police Department.
The student experienced ride-along with patrol officers and working with the dispatch office, seeing first-hand how many law enforcement situations are handled.
Harmon stated, “While things we learn in college will help us in our chosen careers, I learned that the most important part of being a cop is to analyze a situation and know how to solve it with both parties being happy, which is not always easy.”
She is looking forward to the day when she can wear a badge herself, according to Kathleen Swain, Coordinator of Student Academic Success Services at NOC.
Swain helps make internship connections between students and employers in the community to ensure the opportunity for NOC students to gain valuable experience in their chosen field of study.
