When Demi Moore ’11 transferred to Neumann as a sophomore, she decided to pursue a double major in criminal justice and psychology. Her goal was a career in law enforcement. After completing an internship with the Delaware County District Attorney’s Office in the Criminal Investigations Division, Moore was eager to work in her field.
“When I was actually out doing the work in the field, then I knew it was what I wanted to do. My dad is a police officer in Lower Chichester (Delaware County, PA) and I always knew I wanted to be a police officer,” she said.
Moore entered the Delaware State Police Academy in the spring of 2012 for an intensive 22-week training program. She is one of 1,000 individuals who applied, and one of the 22 who were selected. She is one of three women who will be in the academy’s training class.
The guidance that she received from her Neumann professors was instrumental in her success.
“The professors at Neumann were always proactive in helping you and making sure you succeed. Everything that they taught me helped me a lot with the testing. Neumann not only gave me my education but they were a family to me, too. It was my home away from home.”
