STATE ATTORNEY'S OFFICE VOLUNTEER AND STUDENT INTERNSHIP PROGRAM

The State Attorney�s Office Victim Services department provides support services to people who suffer as a result of a criminal act. It also works in the community to advocate for victims� rights and interests and endeavors to achieve a safer community. The volunteers and student interns will assist the Victim Services department in achieving a safer community. The Victim Services program will recruit, train and place volunteers and interns in positions to work side-by-side with victims, state attorney�s office staff and other law enforcement and social service agencies. They will play an integral role in providing services to and for the State Attorney�s Office in the Third Judicial Circuit. The Third Judicial Circuit includes seven counties in North-Central Florida: Columbia County, Dixie County, Hamilton County, Lafayette County, Madison County, Suwannee County and Taylor County. The State Attorney�s main office is in Live Oak and the satellite offices are located in Lake City, Perry, and Cross City. Their services will have a direct impact on the high volume caseloads. The volunteers and interns will allow the Victim Services program to serve victims in a more efficient and effective manner.

REQUIREMENTS

Volunteers and Interns must be at least 18 years of age, in reasonably good health, and must consent to and pass a FCIC and NCIC criminal background check.
