Interns are afforded the opportunity to learn and participate in the functions at the police department. They must maintain a high academic standard in college while employed. Police Interns assist the police department in many functions, including: Homecoming; Memorial Day Parade; Farmer’s Market; Crime Prevention Safety Talks; neighborhood crime prevention, Neighborhood Watch canvassing; and NIXLE presentations.
Police Interns are also used for front desk duties, clerical duties, and day-to-day operations. All of the Police Interns have aspirations of becoming full-time Dearborn Police Officers, and several interns were hired into full-time positions within the Police Department during FY2020.
During FY2020, the Office of Training & Development obtained a grant from the Detroit Wayne County Mental Health Authority in the amount of $50,000 to hire 35 additional temporary, Summer Police Interns. These additional Summer Interns receive training, mentoring and assist the regular Interns with day-to-day activities.
