Tristan McCullough serves internship at Del City PD
An internship with the Del City Police Department gave Tristin McCullough some valuable insight into the life of a law enforcement officer.
McCullough, a Northern Oklahoma College criminal justice major from Del City, Oklahoma, not only observed what patrol officers, dispatchers, and detectives do on a daily basis, he learned about the physical, emotional, and communication skillset necessary to have a successful career in law enforcement.
McCullough described his internship as a positive experience stating, “While riding along with different officers and seeing how they each work showed me the kind of police officer I want to be when I get done with the process.”
