The St. Johnsbury Police Department provides opportunities for local youth to participate in internships though high school and college programs.
This internship program allows students with an interest in careers in law enforcement to be at the St. Johnsbury Police Department during part of their school day. During their time here the students recieve instruction on areas such as police procedures, criminal law, motor vehicle law and village ordinances.
Generally the internship ends with the participating students writing an essay outlining what they have learned and how it has impacted their future career goal choices. The students are also asked to critique the internship program.
