In most cases, interns are scheduled to work 40 hours each week for a total of 400 hours (unless otherwise approved). All students seeking an internship with our office must carry a grade point average of at least 2.75, and have no serious criminal record. In addition, all students must have above average written/verbal skills and have the ability to work independently without continuous supervision.
All interns should be aware that the supervising Probation Officer or Director has the authority to terminate the internship at any time for unacceptable performance or failing to follow the signed contract.
All of our Probation Officers carry a high caseload and are busy, yet we strongly believe in providing access to internships. We will do our very best to expose each intern to the many facets of the world of Probation/Parole and the field of Corrections.
Please complete the Intern Application which includes giving consent for a criminal history check. Forward this, along with a resume and cover letter stating why you would like to intern with our agency to:
