The Bozeman Police Department works closely with Montana State University (MSU) to manage the intern program. Each intern typically works approximately 4 hours a day, 3 days a week, during the assigned semester.

Each intern gains valuable insight and experience regarding how a police department functions.

Interns generally work within the detective division and assist with conducting investigations and compiling crime data.

 At this point, internships are arranged exclusively through MSU for MSU students.

 If interested, please contact the Sociology and Anthropology Department at MSU for further information.

Volunteer Opportunities

Effective crime prevention requires a partnership between the police department and the community. This program strengthens that partnership by having citizens actively involved in various programs and events. It allows the Bozeman Police Department to provide additional community services and helps provide support to functions within the department. These dedicated men and women volunteer their time and services to help make the City of Bozeman a safer place to live and work.
