Our goal is to familiarize the intern with all aspects of the police department operations. Interns may be required to do special studies, prepare written reports, perform clerical duties, data entry and maintenance tasks, as well as other duties that arise during the internship. Written and oral communication skills are emphasized during this program. The intern may be asked to participate in special programs and will participate in a series of ride-alongs, as observers, with officers in the field.

Work Hours

The number of work hours is based on the number of college credits given. Hours and days are adjusted as needed based on specific tasks, assignments and conditions that may affect the operation of the police department. The GCPD Internship coordinators will also attempt to accommodate the intern’s schedules (student athletics and activities, employment, etc.), within reason and as much advanced notice as possible.

Other Requirements

Interns are subject to all rules, regulations, policies and procedures of the Genoa City Police Department. Once accepted for internship, the point of contact will be a Department Training Officer. Interns must carry health and injury insurance during their internship. Such coverage is normally available from the college or university attended. Proof of medical insurance coverage must be submitted prior to the start of the internship.
