Student Internship Program

The Marshalltown Police Department is committed to developing positive, long-lasting partnerships with the community. One of these partnerships is the Student Internship Program. Our goal is to provide students the opportunity to experience the various aspects and responsibilities of law enforcement in a positive work environment.


The program will allow students to interact with the different divisions within the department, gaining valuable knowledge in each area. Time will be spent in each of the following areas: the Operations Division on each of the three patrol shifts, the Special Services Division with the detectives, the Marshall County Communication Center, and at the Marshalltown High School with the School Resource Officer. You will experience how a municipal police department operates on a day-to-day basis.
