The Criminal Justice Internship program is an unpaid learning and training experience within the Wisconsin Department of Corrections (DOC), Division of Community Corrections (DCC). Its goal is to offer education, training, and exposure to probation and parole offenders for Interns interested in a criminal justice career. This goal is accomplished by providing Interns with practical work experience including direct involvement with offenders, victims, the courts, law enforcement agencies, and treatment providers. This Internship Program allows the Intern to work with a diverse and often disadvantaged offender population.
