Bachelors: Criminal Justice

South University

I am working on a Bachelors in Criminal Justice with an emphasis on Crime Scene Investigation. I was able to complete an intern with my local sheriff's office. I was able to observe fingerprinting, the retrieval of serial numbers from weapons and garnered information from the crime scene investigations regarding how to process a crime scene, the photography necessary, how to fill out the proper forms.

I am currently teaching myself photography.

Skills

Skills

Creative Thinking

I had an interesting scenario while attempting to serve papers to someone. I had the phone number of the person that I was attempting to serve. So I called it pretending I was a courier service who had papers but I needed his signature. I was able to set up a time that he'd be home and was able to serve him the papers. I had previously attempted to sub-serve (giving the papers to a family member) but that didn't work. By using the creative thinking, I was able to successfully complete the job for the client.

High Integrity

I strive to do my best to complete the job and satisfy the client. I don't take shortcuts and am trustworthy in all matters.

Willing to go the extra mile

I will do whatever it takes to complete the job and to satisfy the client.

Fast Learner

I enjoy learning new things. As I study for my bachelors degree, I am studying new subjects. If I don't know something, then I take the time to learn it. I believe in a person's ability to keep learning new things.

Has Excellent Results

I work hard to get excellent results- if I have a problem or a question, I don't hesitate to ask for help. I believe in working hard for a client or working until the job is complete.

Punctual

I am always punctual. I believe that a client's time is important and should not be wasted. I have learned over the years to always leave enough time when leaving point A to point B or when I'm working on a project.

Typist

I am a typist but I'm not sure wpm. I do a lot of typing in my classes and emailing.

Summary

As a recent graduate, I am looking for work in my field of Criminal Justice. I want to make a difference in the life of others. I am willing to learn and don't come with my own preconceived ideas about how things should work. I currently live in Monroe, GA but I'm willing to relocate.

Interest

I am currently teaching myself chemistry. I enjoy keeping detailed records, listening to people, organizing things, writing fiction, selling things, cooking, helping others, researching, thinking, planning events, exercising, and solving puzzles.
