Training for the future in the real world of law enforcement

Posted: Tuesday, July 03, 2001

Soldotna Police Chief Shirley Warner has been trying to get a college intern program budgeted for several years, and this year she was successful. As a result, a former Soldotna High School graduate, Marisa Kimbrell, is able to get an up close look at a profession she has chosen to study in college. "Marisa mentioned to more than a year ago that she would like to become an FBI agent. So I thought what a great opportunity the college intern program would be for her. We like to have our area students be able to come back and work with us. What I hope to do here is give Marisa a variety of experiences to get a well rounded feeling of what law enforcement is all about. It's really working out great," said Chief Warner.

"The main reason I want to be a law enforcement officer is that they help people, and that's what I want to do. What I see of the real work that goes on here has convinced me that this is very rewarding work. The officers are really great, and I've seen a lot of family involved with the police department," commented Kimbrell who says she will continue her study of criminology when she returns to college in the fall.
