The two worked for the Minnea polis Vice Squad this past summer on an eight-week internship spon- VSOCCTf sored by the Mo re he ad Foundation. The foundation placed 58 other scholars in internships across the country. Williams, of Boone and DiGiano, of Chapel Hill, worked in depart ments of the Minneapolis Police Department with duties ranging from aiding bar and brothel patrols to serving as decoys for solicitation of prostitution. The two say that the internship taught them respect for police officers. "It's a tough job because people are always apprehensive and nervous around police," says DiGiano. "Peo ple have the attitude that the police are an intrusion instead of help and protection. I could never do what they do, and HI always respect their efforts.' Williams adds that police are just regular people.

Police are held on pedestals as if they're supposed to be perfect. There are so many demands on them, but they are people who really care and are committed to helping people. Every day they go out with no guarantee they 11 come back." And when they do make it back, DiGiano says she found that unplea sant circumstances often await. "Many times," she says, "all police officers are surrounded by is unsolved cases, frustration, high expectations from society and five pounds of paperwork." DiGiano also found that she was unaccustomed to the police environ ment. MI feel like I went into a different part of society," she says. 44 We Ve learned not only how law enforcement works, but how the , bottom 10 percent of the population lives. . . . Many of them are repeat offenders with files inches thick." Most people don't realize that police treat symptoms and not diseases of society, Williams says. "Crime is a way of life for people in slums. They want what they can't have but try to get it through crime. It's easier for them to steal than to work." i DiGiano says that seeing under privileged people gave her a more well-rounded view of society. "(At UNC), people tend to be sheltered. WeYe lucky we have an education and to know we have a future," she says. "To many, there's no future besides; emptying garbage cans at Hardee's. Some don't even realize there's a world outside their housing project;" r Williams says she discovered that police ) work was not what most expect J "Most people who watch TV don't understand. So many take crime lightly. It's not a glamorous profession." DiGiano says police must deal with frustrating murder cases and the upset family members who survive. "But wjhat can be done when a Miller beer can by the victim's body is the only lead?" she says. "A lot of police officers burn out. They get so immersed in their work that they become great cops, but one day they ' can't handle constantly giving them selves, only to have people and circumstance throw brick walls at them." Both Williams and DiGiano urge people to have more relaxed atti tudes about police. "By now, most people have had; a run-in with : the police and are nervous whenever they see a police car on the road. They're not out to get anyone. If you happen to be doing something that's illegal or looks like a hazard, yes, theyll stop you. But they have more important things to do than stop you for signaling improperly." Williams says. "They dont get brownie points for 1 turning in the most tickets," DiGiano says. "The policemens' attitude is.! that by speeding or whipping around a corner or running a light you could hurt yourself, not to mention others. "Give the police a break," she says. "These people work long, hard hours. . . . The next time you see one, be nice and stop and say hello." QLfijj (fir? OtaimD (Pomes MOVIES!
