About this Unit
The Policing Leaders Internship offers work experience to students enrolled in the Bachelor of Policing (Leadership) and Bachelor of Policing degrees within the School of Social Sciences. Internships can take place in a range of policing organisations such as the NSW Police Force, Police Association of NSW, and other member organisations of the Police Federation of Australia. Internship placements will require students to utilise a range of social science skills obtained throughout the Bachelor of Policing (Leadership) and Bachelor of Policing degree programs. This practical work schedule is supported by a reading program that examines different approaches to the study of policing organisations (their structures, functions and policies) and links these issues to the internship experience. The internship provides work at a host organisation for fourteen full days, totalling 105 hours. Typically, this internship component will be realised as one day per week for fourteen weeks, however an alternative spread of work may be agreed between the organisation, the student, and the unit coordinator. The unit is only offered in the Spring session of Level 3, and is worth 10 units of credit, which will be recorded as an elective on your degree transcript. There is only one lecture for this unit.
