Student Intern Officers


The Student Intern Officer (SIO) program allows college students who are interested in criminal justice careers to experience the practical work environment. Applicants must maintain at least a 2.5 GPA, be enrolled in a college or university in the Front Range area, and have a valid driver's license. Student Intern Officers must pass a stringent selection process involving math/verbal testing, oral board interview, integrity interview, polygraph examination, drug screening, and a background check.


Application deadlines (postmarked):


Deadline for Spring semester 2015 is November 1, 2014.


Any application received without the appropriate postmark will not be considered.

Student Intern Officers are primarily assigned to the Patrol Division, but are also given opportunities to serve in other divisions. Intern Officers are encouraged to stay with the Department once their internship hours have been completed. As intern officers, students may attend any standard in-service training and are able to witness or participate in many aspects of law enforcement.

Volunteer student interns will work directly with the public in a variety of ways including responding to calls for police service regarding found property, abandoned vehicles, nuisance complaints and directing traffic at accident scenes.

This is an unpaid volunteer position for those outstanding college students interested in a future law enforcement career. Student Intern Officers are uniformed. A Student Intern Officer brochure is available outlining duties and assignments of students.

The volunteer application can be returned to the Longmont Police Department, ATTN: Robin Ericson, 225 Kimbark St., Longmont, CO 80501.

If you have questions regarding this application or the volunteer program,

please contact the Student Intern Officer Assistant Coordinator at 303 - 651 - 8424.
