The Palomar College Police Department Intern Program is a program to specifically develop professional, confident, and well-trained interns who are ready to serve the Palomar College community. Our interns gain valuable experiences and learn a great deal about police services. This program will train individuals in such areas as: officer safety, campus patrol, crime recognition, citizen assist services, customer service, parking regulations and enforcement, traffic control, report writing, handling of lost property, security of college property, RCS radio use/procedures, and special event security. Our interns must be willing to follow and adhere to Police Department Policies and Procedures. Interns must commit to a minimum of 15 hours per month and must successfully pass a background investigation. Please note that our background investigations can take up to 30-60 days.

The Palomar College Police Department Volunteer Program plays an indispensable role in the day to day operations of the Police Department. Our Volunteers are composed of college students or trainees who work without pay in order to gain police work experience. Volunteers may be required to perform tasks that require physical exertion, stamina, flexibility and standing or walking for long periods of time. Volunteers assist with building security, traffic control, motorist assistance, writing reports and other public services as needed at the main campus in San Marcos and/or the Escondido Center. Volunteers will provide information to the public; make written and oral reports of any hazardous condition impacting the college and its community. Volunteers are expected to perform a variety of clerical and secretarial tasks to provide information to students, faculty, staff and the general public. Volunteers must commit to a minimum of 20 hours per month and must successfully pass a background investigation. Please note that our background investigations can take up to 30-60 days.
