This unit follows the principle that knowledge in and of itself serves no humanitarian purpose if it is not shared with those who wish to acquire it.  The ICSU works closely with the internship program of the University of New Haven. 

Through this internship, several students interested in crime scene investigation, have the opportunity to work in a specialized unit of the West Haven Police Department that is highly respected in the legal and law enforcement community.  These interns are given a hands on approach to practical techniques utilized in everyday law enforcement investigations.
