Cutline: NOC Student Chase Manly recently served an internship with the Fort Oakland Tribal Police Department
Chase Manly learns law enforcement from Fort Oakland Tribal Police
Chase Manly, a criminal justice major at Northern Oklahoma College from Tonkawa, recently completed an internship with the Fort Oakland Tribal Police Department outside of Tonkawa.
Through this internship, Manly had the opportunity to patrol the reservation with officers and interact with members of the tribal community.
He speaks highly of his experience stating, “This special insight on federally regulated Tribal law enforcement agencies has given me a new perspective on the differences of actions taken in relation to Tribal and non-Tribal offences brought upon by both Tribal and non-Tribal members of the community and how a separate court is required if either party consists of a Tribal member(s).”
Kathleen Swain, Coordinator of Student Academic Success Services at NOC, 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.
