What are the benefits of an internship?

The selection process for an internship is competitive. Therefore, being selected is an accomplishment. It is an opportunity to get work experience with an actual law enforcement agency. Also, the skills and knowledge which you will develop can be a beneficial attribute when competing for criminal justice job openings. Lastly, it shows a true commitment to a career in law enforcement.

 

What types of internships are available?

The type of internship will be dependant upon the type of agency. If the agency does a significant amount of criminal intelligence, than most likely interns with that agency will also be involved with criminal intelligence. Interns will not carry firearms, make arrests, or be involved in potentially dangerous situations. Interns generally work in support roles for the law enforcement mission.

 

What if my internship is in another city?

Generally, travel expenses, housing and meals are the responsibility of the intern. There may be situations where the host agency provides some type of assistance. However, absent of knowing that, the applicant should plan on covering all costs associated with the internship.
