In cooperation with the Department of Sociology, Anthropology and Social Work of Kansas State University, the Department will participate in its intern program for upper class students. However, interns not associated with KSU may be considered for inclusion in the program subject to approval of the Director. The Director, or designee, will determine the maximum number of interns accepted during any semester. This allows for adequate cross training in all Divisions of the Department. Interns are viewed at a participant observer. Their objective is to learn as much as possible about police work without being involved in any official police action. To that end, each intern will be assigned to the various divisions of the Department throughout the duration of the internship. Placement into and length of stay within the divisions will be prioritized first upon the needs of the divisions and secondly upon the skills and interests of the intern. All intern positions are unpaid and supervised by the Human Resource Coordinator.
