Internships

The Student Intern Program provides unpaid academic study-related work assignments that allows students to explore career options in addition to developing personal and professional skills. Working in any of the four districts or specialty areas, this assignment can prepare students for a career with the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office.

The program offers many advantages including career exploration early in a student's academic studies, exposure to new and emerging occupations, technologies, academic credit for work performed (if applicable), and work experience that may be considered relevant if the student later applied for a permanent position.

Requirements and Qualifications

  • Be enrolled or accepted for enrollment during the upcoming semester or quarter as a diploma/certificate/degree seeking.
  • Obtain an agreement from the institution to participate
  • Maintain a satisfactory academic record of 2.5 or better cumulative grade point average.

Background Investigation

Applicants must pass a background investigation. Students may be accepted to the internship program, based on the results of a preliminary background investigation. However, internship is contingent upon a satisfactory completion of the full background investigation.

Work Schedule

Students are expected to intern for the required semester credit hours per your school.

Assignments

Most assignments are ride-a-longs with deputies in the Districts but you may also be used in a support role in any of the various assignments.
