Unfortunately, due to COVID the King County Sheriff’s Office has had to suspend the internship program through the end of 2022.  We are gearing up to re-open the program for the Summer of 2023, and will begin accepting applications at the beginning of 2023. 

King County Sheriff's Office offers internship opportunities for interested college students pursuing a career in the criminal justice field, or those who simply want to expand their skill set to build a stronger resume as they enter the workforce.  All internships are intended to meet eligibility requirements for college credit (please check with your academic advisor to verify).  Internships with King County Sheriff's Office are unpaid and ineligible for benefits.
