New to Masscops just have a couple questions regarding this upcoming Civil Service exam. I interned with Mass State Police VFAS in college in 2015 and they basically told me although I had NH residency to just take the 2015 test to see what its like. I ended up scoring a 98 but obviously that doesn't much matter knowing that I had no residency preference. Long story short I ended up moving to Boston (because I like it out here, not strictly for police work) and working over at Mass General. A lot of the veteran BPD officers coming into MGH are telling me that this is the year to have Boston residency, claiming a bunch of them are retiring before they "hook me up with those stupid body cameras". Any word on if there is any truth to Boston supposedly hiring a lot of new officers this year? Also, does having EMT Basic actually add points to your score or just give you "preference" compared to somebody without it? Any info on really anything in regards to Boston hiring is appreciated, thanks.
