Students are invited to supplement their academic curriculum by working in the Pretrial Services intake office located at the Pima County Adult Detention Center.

Interns interview defendants, conduct background investigations and prepare reports identifying the most appropriate release conditions for those defendants scheduled for their initial appearance in court. The focus of the internship is to provide students with the opportunity to work in a structured criminal justice setting and develop professional-caliber skills related to conducting interviews, assessing information and writing reports.
