The primary purpose of the Fulton County Sheriff’s Office Internship Program is to provide students with an opportunity to integrate academic learning with hands-on experience in law enforcement. The Sheriff’s Office looks to provide internships that offer experiences that will sustain and further develop the skills that students will use, to assume leadership roles in the field of law enforcement.
