(Washington, DC) – The Office of Police Complaints (OPC) recently welcomed its 2012 class of summer interns and law clerks. More than 100 college and law students have participated in the agency’s internship program since the agency’s inception in 2001.
OPC’s two investigative interns will assist experienced investigators in reviewing complaints of police misconduct and gathering evidence. The public affairs intern will develop communications materials and coordinate and participate in community outreach events. The two law school students will conduct research on legal issues and prepare recommendations for police reform.
“OPC is fortunate to keep attracting talented students,” said Philip K. Eure, OPC’s executive director. “Using skills they’ve acquired in the classroom, the students will work on a variety of projects aimed at enhancing police accountability in the nation’s capital.”
This year’s summer interns are:

Jenna Shay, rising senior, Salisbury University
