NOTE: Background Checks, Drug/Alcohol screening will typically be required for Internship placement. Previous convictions could hinder this process and/or future employment within this career field. If you have a concern, be sure to notify your advisor so it can be discussed. Given how strictly agencies screen applicants, if you have a drug/alcohol dependency or previous record you should likely reconsider a career path in criminal justice.
