It attempts to identify areas of concern and implement proactive solutions.

The goal is to bring a judgment against any property that facilitated a criminal offense.

While in this position the intern will get to work directly with law enforcement agencies throughout the state including DPS, Phoenix PD, Tempe PD, MCSO and other various agencies.

This position is an excellent experience as the intern will get the opportunity to network with many different agencies in the criminal justice field.
