    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.

  • Out-of-Town Applicants (Sworn)

    Two Hours or More From the Tampa Area

    Out-of-Town applicants are those applicants that have a two or more hour commute from the Tampa area and wish to apply for one of our Sworn career positions. Certain accommodations are made for our out-of-town applicants. These accommodations do not diminish the strict adherence to minimum qualifications, testing standards and integrity issue that may, at some point, disqualify the applicant. It is imperative that the out-of-town applicant is sure he or she is qualified and physically capable of passing the Physical Abilities Assessment. It is anticipated that out-of-town applicants will be required to travel to the Tampa area at least twice during the application process.
