Suffolk County Sheriff’s Department’s

2022 Summer Enrichment Program

Applications deadline: Friday, April 25th, 2022


Launched in 2014, the Summer Enrichment Program provides young people with the opportunity to begin an internship with one of the oldest law enforcement agencies in the country, and one of the largest in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts while working alongside established career professionals in the world of law enforcement. Participants will gain insight into the world of law enforcement through job shadowing, weekly presentations by members of law enforcement, roundtable discussions, law enforcement-related field trips, and educational tours.

In response to the Coronavirus Disease-19 (COVID-19) pandemic, and with the implementation of strict health and safety protocols, the Suffolk County Sheriff’s Department’s (SCSD) interns will participate in either REMOTE, HYBRID or IN-PERSON activities. More information will be provided during the interview process.

The Suffolk County Sheriff’s Department Summer Enrichment Program is a seven-week program that begins on Wednesday, July 6th and ends on Friday, August 19th. The program will invite twenty participants, selected from a group of high school students, to the Suffolk County Sheriff’s Department to learn more about careers in law enforcement. Participants will work 21 hours a week on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, from 8am – 4pm, and will be compensated at a rate of $14.25 per-hour. During each week of the internship, members will participate in a “meet and greet” with members of the law enforcement community.

At the conclusion of the program, all participants will have completed and received their CPR Certification in addition to a Certificate of Completion from the Suffolk County Sheriff’s Department. By the end of their participation, members of the program will have not only gained insight into the world of law enforcement and met a variety of notable law enforcement officials, but they also will have gained transferable job skills they can utilize later on in their careers.

For employment, applicants must participate in a competitive interview process, complete the written application, submit a CORI form, pass a drug test, complete a physical examination from their doctor, possess a valid picture ID (school ID, passport or driver’s license) and have a savings or checking account. Ideal applicants will be mature, professional and have an interest in some aspect of law enforcement. Applicants will be notified of the Department’s decision by telephone. Once admitted, applicants will receive Department issued polo shirts and be required to wear khakis for the duration of the program.

The deadline for the application is Monday, April 25th.
