The Sheriff’s Office sponsors a competitive college internship program that focuses on law enforcement and corrections. Interns will have the opportunity to tour, observe and learn about the Fairfax County Adult Detention Center, Courthouse, Criminal Justice Academy and Merrifield Crisis Response Center. Interns may also do a civil enforcement ride-along.
Internships can be a maximum of 270 hours. We accept applications year-round so please note your desired time frame for completion. The internship coordinator will contact you to discuss scheduling when an opening becomes available. Interns earn course credit but not monetary compensation.
