Today marks the beginning of the 2016 summer internship program for four college students who have aspirations of a career in law enforcement.
Sheriff Tim Cameron and Pam McKay, Coordinator of the Intern Program, kicked off the orientation by welcoming the new interns to the Sheriff’s Office, prior to their tour of headquarters. In his remarks, Cameron emphasized the significance of the intern opportunity and addressed the rewards of a career in law enforcement. He then encouraged each intern to be inquisitive and to learn about all aspects of the Sheriff’s Office, including the varied duties of officers and staff.
The interns will spend several weeks at the Sheriff’s Office, following a rotation schedule which will enable them to gain a comprehensive view of all the divisions within the Sheriff’s Office. Although the opportunity is unpaid, interns learn valuable skills which will make them more marketable to employers after graduation.
The Sheriff’s Office will begin accepting applications for the summer of 2017 in February. Any questions about future sessions should be addressed to Program Coordinator Pam McKay, at Pam.McKay@stmarysmd.com.
