Internship Program


The SC Law Enforcement Division’s Student Internship Program is a non-paid program implemented throughout the year in conjunction with colleges and universities throughout the country. The purpose of the program is to expose a number of outstanding undergraduate and graduate students to the SC Law Enforcement Division and encourage future career interest in the field of law enforcement. A limited number of internships will be awarded each term. Individuals possessing strong academic credentials, a strong degree of motivation, and the ability to represent SLED upon returning to their various campuses, will be selected.


Selection for the SC Law Enforcement Division’s Student Internship Program will be based on an individual’s enrollment in a two or four year program or graduate level academic program. Applicants must also have at least a 2.5 cumulative academic grade point average on a 4.0 scale, or the equivalent, and must meet other requirements deemed necessary for access to SLED facilities.


Intern applicants must submit to the SC Law Enforcement Division Office of Human Resources prior to the semester in which the internship is to be served the following:

  1. Completed Internship Application
  2. Personal Resume with One Reference
  3. Official Transcript (sent directly from College/University)
  4. Written Recommendation from Academic Advisor or Dean

Failure to complete and submit the above documents will delay the internship application process.
