Imagine spending days and evening for four weeks immersed in executive leadership education with the finest law enforcement leaders in the country - attending classes when possible, sharing meals, or working out. Imagine the new perspectives to be gained. Imagine the connections you will make.
Interns will gain professional work experience, academic growth, and first-hand involvement with decision makers in the global law enforcement community. In addition to supporting North Star attendees across their entire curriculum (classes, table-top crisis exercise, speaker's series, and even fitness efforts), interns also will have opportunities outside of North Star such as a ride-along with a local police department or sheriff's office. You will be busy. You will be engaged. And you will love every minute of it.
Internships are 4 to 5 weeks in duration (we can accommodate shorter or longer terms depending on the requirements of your university) --- Internships should be completed for academic credit --- Flexible work schedule up to 40 hours per week (day and evening hours based on program needs) --- Your internship and travel to and from the conference center are unpaid.
