St. Louis County Police Department, Office of Emergency Management Internship Program


The St. Louis County Police Department, Office of Emergency Management (SLCPD/OEM) Internship Program provides students with a unique opportunity to apply classroom skills and theory to real life work situations.  This hands-on program is designed to strengthen fundamental emergency management concepts and develop the confidence and skills of the next generation to prepare them for future employment opportunities.

As an intern, participants are expected to employ their skills and abilities to contribute to the objectives of their assigned host organization.  Internships provide exposure to industry professionals and promote career development.  To support that endeavor, interns will be placed based on interests, academic standing, and a background check.

The internship experience should be one that strengthens an area(s) where the intern is lacking in real-world knowledge and experience.  Students who intern with the OEM will be able to use the experience to build resumes, gain valuable experience in homeland security and emergency management principles, and gain entry into the emergency management / public administration field.

The internship should be at least sixteen (16) weeks in length during the standard school semester (Fall/Spring).  For the summer session the weeks will be reduced to twelve (12).  The goal of this program is so the student can gain enough experience in the emergency management field to benefit him/her in the workplace.
