The U. S. Probation Office, Middle District of Georgia, admits selected students into an internship program designed to contribute to the education of the student and broaden the agency’s commitment through community involvement. The goal of the internship program is to give students at the college senior and graduate levels the opportunity to observe firsthand the actual duties of a U. S. Probation Officer. Under the supervision of a probation officer, students contact clients in the office and field, assist in the preparation of presentence and prerelease investigations, and participate in activities that will enable them to relate classroom theory to probation and parole practice.
Internships are not limited to the Criminal Justice field of study. Students pursuing other degree programs (Psychology, Public Administration, Computer Science, Information Systems, etc) may also apply.
Contact Chief U.S. Probation Officer Robert R. Long for further questions and current internship openings.
