Internship with Columbus Police

In this internship, the intern will observe recruit physical training and make recommendations for any changes, as well as support recruits in preparation for taking the state physical fitness test. Ideally the intern will be available from about September 2022 to March 2023 to complete this cycle for one recruit class.

Interested students can submit a personal cover letter and recommendation letter from a professor or academic advisor to Iris Velasco at

Due to the nature of working in a law enforcement agency, the application process also includes a background review, personal history statement, and polygraph. Please forward this email to others who may be interested, and thank you very much.
