District of Columbia Department of Human Resources Internships

District of Columbia Department of Human Resources Internships

The DC Department of Human Resources (DCHR) provides human resource management services that strengthen individual and organizational performance and enable the District government to attract, develop and retain a well-qualified, diverse workforce.

The Washington, DC Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) is always seeking qualified individuals to consider careers in law enforcement either as sworn members or as civilian employees that support the vital mission of the agency. MPD is pleased to offer challenging and rewarding opportunities for professional development to qualified students.  Internships allow students to think about the transition from school to practice and to develop insights into the law enforcement profession that are rarely available in a conventional classroom setting.  The MPD non-paid internship program introduces students to aspects of law enforcement that enhance students’ understanding of the criminal justice system.  In addition, students are introduced to the various career opportunities that await them should they decide to choose law enforcement as a career either as a police officer or as a civilian employee.

Students who participate in the MPD Internship Program may receive academic credit for their fieldwork in accordance with the criteria developed by their particular institution.  Interns will be closely supervised and will be exposed to exciting opportunities such as brown-bag luncheons with Command Staff members, ride-alongs, visits to the Metropolitan Police Academy training facilities,  and opportunities to observe the Joint Operation Command Center, a state-of-the-art communication center designed to coordinate law enforcement activities among various federal and state public safety agencies.

The MPD Internship Program also provides information to students who wish to enter careers in law enforcement such as the application process for sworn membership, the background investigation process, and pointers on interviewing and drafting a resume. Students interested in becoming police officers will be able to meet with MPD recruiters and arrange to take the entry-level examination during their internship.
