Twentieth Judicial Circuit of Florida



Volunteer/Internship Program

Updated: 04/02/2014 07:00 AM

The Twentieth Judicial Circuit Volunteer Program exists to provide the opportunity for volunteers to offer additional resources to this office in order to increase our efficiency and services to the community.   As a volunteer at the State Attorney's Office, you will have a unique opportunity to work with the largest geographical circuit in the state of Florida.     The Twentieth Judicial Circuit includes Charlotte, Collier, Hendry, Glades and Lee Counties.

Our mission is to prosecute criminals and to serve the victims and witnesses who become involved in the criminal justice system.     As crime increases, so do the number of victims and witnesses we need to assist.    In order to accomplish this, we need the help of our community in the form of dedicated volunteers.
