I am Maxwell.

Alex Lynch initially imagined himself working in environmental infrastructure, but over the course of the CCE program, he developed passions and skills that led him to his dream job at the NYPD. “My CCE project is what brought me to DPS and crime. Once I began work at DPS and gained exposure to investigations and crime analysis, that really piqued my interest in the field and made me want to go further.”
