Applicants should be taking a relevant course of study, such as in the ASU School of Criminal Justice and Criminology, and have a minimum cumulative G.P.A. of 2.75. 

These internships will provide an excellent opportunity to work with experienced investigators involved in various types of criminal investigations and complaint intake. Investigations may involve:

·        Political corruption

·        Money laundering

·        Consumer fraud

·        Medical fraud

·        Vulnerable adult abuse

These positions are non-paid.  If the intern seeks University credit, the number of hours must meet the minimum established by the University. The hours will typically fall between 8:00 AM and 5:00 PM Monday through Friday, however other hours and weekends are possible in special circumstances. All hours and days worked are negotiable depending on each intern’s availability.



·         SPRING: January - April

·         SUMMER: May - August

Intern orientations/start dates are held biweekly on Mondays unless it's a holiday. Prospective interns should select sessions based on their dates of availability.



Interns under serious consideration will be required to:

·        Submit to an oral interview

·        Be fingerprinted by the Office and pass a criminal background check

·        Submit to a background investigation 

An internship offer cannot be tendered until the candidate has successfully passed the initial background check. Not every applicant will be accepted. All accepted interns must complete a training/orientation program and sign a letter of confidentiality due to the sensitive nature of the investigations they will be involved with.
