Student Internships

The Omaha Police Department has involved interns for many years.


In 1980, in conjunction with the University of Omaha Criminal Justice Department, the internship program was re-organized and has developed and expanded to its current status. OPD places between 15-20 interns per year within the Criminal Investigation Bureau for criminal justice majors and the Crime Lab for forensics majors. 


The University of Nebraska at Omaha and Kearney provide the majority of interns. However, various other universities and colleges have also provided interns.

If you are interested in an Internship with the Omaha Police, contact the Coordinator of Volunteer Services at (402) 444-3598 or complete the application below and return it to OPD.
