FAMU Rattlers Continue to Make Significant Contributions to the U.S. Marshals

Florida A&M University student Carl Brown recently graduated from the Centralized Student Career Experience Program (CSCEP) with the U.S. Department of Justice following in the footsteps of many before him.

FAMU places more students in CSCEP than any other historically black college or university (HBCU) in the nation, and first became a host site for the program through the efforts of FAMU’s Assistant Chief of Police James Lockley, Jr., the first U.S. Marshal to serve in Florida.

“I always knew I wanted to be a federal agent, and I knew this program was for me,” said Brown, a criminal justice student from Ocala, Fla. “What you see on TV and what the media portray is totally different from the actual thing. The program teaches a lot before you actually step into your career. If I could do it all over again, I would have it no other way.”

CSCEP is a cooperative education program within the U.S. Marshal Service used to fill deputy U.S. Marshal positions. The program is designed to provide a wide range of work experience so that students will become familiar with both administrative and performance duties of U.S. Marshals.

Program participants will act as deputy trainees and gain hands-on experience with warrants, courts support, criminal and civil issues and firearm familiarization.

Brown is currently employed by the U.S. Marshals, performing administrative tasks, and will start in the U.S. Marshals Academy on July 11.

I believe that those great people in the Department of Sociology and Criminal Justice. They have been doing this for a long time. It is a shame that this is the first time someone has mentioned it. There are other great programs out there in from this department that is for FAMU. Internships with the Department of State, and Florida Department of Law Enforcement, and Florida Department of Corrections. Call the College of Arts and Sciences for more information. But if they can't help call Dept. of Criminal Justice at 850-599-3316.
