OFFICE OF THE INDEPENDENT ASSESSOR

STUDENT PROFESSIONAL WORKER - JOB OPPORTUNITY

HOURLY RATE: $15.41

 

The Office of the Independent Assessor (OIA) for the Los Angeles Board of Fire Commissioners is seeking a graduate student intern, preferably from a law or public policy school (first year law students may apply) for a paid position.  Students interested in public employment law, labor law, public safety (fire and police) law and policy, municipal law, and/or transparency in government are encouraged to apply.

 

The OIA is the inspector general for the Los Angeles Fire Department, responsible for assessing how the Fire Department handles complaints of misconduct against sworn and civilian members of the Department.  The OIA also has authority to assess any other operations of the Fire Department.

 

The Independent Assessor reports directly to the Board of Fire Commissioners, the civilian head of the LAFD, and assists the Fire Commission in providing independent civilian oversight of the Fire Department. The small size of the OIA affords a Student Professional Worker (SPW) an opportunity to play an integral role in the day-to-day work, this includes interacting with LAFD personnel and observing daily operations. Students are given the opportunity to ride along with the Fire Department during emergency operations and attend various Fire Department ceremonies and festivities.

 

Duties may include, but are not limited to:

•Reviewing and analyzing internal affairs investigations;                                     

•Conducting legal research;

•Reviewing and analyzing LAFD policies; and

•Researching best practices of fire and other public safety agencies.

 

Students will also have the opportunity to meet Los Angeles City officials and learn about the inner workings of the City.

 

The SPW may work full or part time.* An SPW is restricted to work a maximum of 1039 hours for the City of Los Angeles in a 12-month period.  Please note that this position is not a permanent Civil Service position with the City of Los Angeles. Therefore, the position is not eligible for any employee benefits.

 

The selected candidate will be required to take and pass a pre-employment medical exam and clear a background investigation.

 

The OIA is now accepting applications for Summer 2017.  This posting will remain open until a sufficient number of applications are received.  May close at any time.  Please feel free to contact the office with questions.

 

Eligibility Requirements: 

 

1. Current full-time enrollment in an accredited four-year college or university or an accredited law school and must maintain 3.0 GPA.

2. Must be enrolled in and successfully complete a minimum of 6 semester (or 8 quarter) units of degree-oriented classes each semester (quarter) while employed as a Student Professional Worker. For quarter system programs, students must attend at least 3 quarters each year.

3. Satisfactory proof (enrollment verification, official college transcript, etc.,) must be submitted upon hire.

4. Student Professional Workers must maintain enrollment as a full-time student to continue employment, and must submit proof of enrollment not later than two weeks after the commencement of each Semester or Quarter.
