2020 Internship Program Application

The mission of the Fayetteville Police Department’s Internship Program is to offer college students, an enlightening, rewarding, and educational experience. The goal of the program is to provide a meaningful educational and work experience to the selected interns; as well as present an opportunity to assess the police profession first hand.

Our internship offers students an opportunity to observe and work in various units of the police department such as Investigations, Community Affairs, Forensics, Planning, Research & Development, and the Patrol Division. Students will learn about the departments staffing, mission, activities, records, and services. Internships are composed of both observations and administrative work. Students are not required to major in Criminal Justice. This internship is open to only students currently enrolled in universities or colleges located in North Carolina.  This is a 10 week summer internship program.
