The Cook County Sheriff’s Office (CCSO) invites students to join us and embrace our mission to improve the lives of people in Chicago and Cook County. Students will experience the opportunity to work in the public sector alongside front-line professionals in the CCSO’s Department of Corrections, the Department of Public Policy, the Quality Improvement team, the Office of Research, and the Police Department where they will have the ability to make changes and reforms that can make our world more just and equitable.
The Sheriff’s Office has several focus areas where students can help create and implement programs and policies that can drive change in the CCSO organization and in our communities. These focus areas include criminal justice reform, efforts to address poverty and homelessness, curbing violence, expanding green initiatives, and improving conditions in economically distressed communities. This is a 10-week full time paid internship. Throughout the 10 weeks, students will coordinate their work with a professor or an advisor in addition to having a supervisor at CCSO.
After the fellowship, Sheriff Tom Dart will visit the universities the students attend and provide an overview of the students’ contributions to advancing these initiatives.
We want to learn and benefit from students’ ideas and fresh eyes while also providing them with the opportunity to develop a passion for working for social justice reform.
We encourage students to come join us and help us make the real world one that is just and equitable for all.
