    RI is so simple theres only like 4 types of academies.... RIMPA for literally any LEO except for RISP and Prov which have their own seperate academies and then one sheriffs academy that trains deputies for all 5 counties of RI and all of them have the same powers.... zero red tape; and I think Vermont and Maine are on that same boat as well, NH I have no clue

    also this needs to be reinstated
    I know its a thing before my procreation but this really should be a thing nowadays

    Just because some empire-building sheriffs allow their people to operate outside the scope of their duties and responsibilities, doesn’t make them police officers.

    Several years ago, the Bristol County Sheriff sent deputies into New Bedford & Fall River to “help” and it was an unmitigated disaster.

    But a call in West Bumfuck at 3 am does? That was your example of why other states need unified training

    Policing is regional, all of the debates are pointless. Have one standard for everyone, if you want a special standard on top of that do so at your agency. This dick measuring bulshit is tired, when you have people chomping at the bit to do the right thing, and you have elite agencies with slugs. One academy for every cop. You want to have a special campaign hat maintenance class, do that at your own agency

    Go back and read what I wrote, specifically the example of Maine. The rural areas have a call list of LE agencies that take turns responding to calls after hours, the list includes the state police, sheriff’s departments, game wardens, forest rangers, and whatever nearby towns have their own police departments.

    That doesn’t happen in Massachusetts. Any towns that don’t have their own PD’s are covered by the state police. Period.

    You’re not going to have a EPO and deputy sheriff show up at your house at 3am in Massachusetts.

    Not true Larry was located and brought home after he was caught trying to sell himself in a rest area out by the Quabbin reservoir.

    Kilvinsky I think, therefore I'll never be promoted.

    I'm late to the party, but CONGRATS NEW TROOPERS!

    The 1992 merger was one of the worst things to ever happen to Massachusetts law enforcement, it accomplished the exact opposite of what was intended.

    So its obvious what the Capitol Police did but what was the primary mission of the RMV police and the Metropolitan police??? Was it CV enforcement for RMVPD and was it basically what DC Metro does but for Boston when it came to the Metro police?? Asking for a history lesson... :)

    Kind of thread drift, but to address your question ..... The Washington DC Metropolitan Police Dept is a true “city” PD, not a specialized agency like the old MDC police. Back in the late ‘60s and early ‘70s, I remember those MDC guys chasing us teenagers out of drinking spots in the woods near some lakes, ponds and reservoirs, and frequently ticketing us on certain parkways. Some interesting info in here:

    The MDC (Metropolitan District Commission, now known as the Department of Conservation and Recreation) or Metropolitan Police in MA started out as the MDC Parks Police in the 1800’s. They were responsible for primary policing at all MDC facilities (beaches, parks, zoos) and roadways within the commonwealth. At one time, they had over 600 sworn officers, making them one of the largest PD’s in Massachusetts.

    The RMV or Registry Police conducted all driving road tests, did traffic enforcement statewide, CVE, and had to be notified of all fatal crashes in the state. They also had a top-notch crash reconstruction team that would assist any PD that didn’t have a team of their own.

    Funny you guys mention that, theres a mod for GTA 5 where you can be a police officer whether it be for the city, a sheriff, a highway patrolman or even a park ranger; maybe the new troopers practiced APP and other academy topics by playing GTA 5 with that mod installed :D

    Oh yeah.... theres plenty of people doing patrols with MSP vehicle and character models in the game but one of the most popular videos about the MSP as a topic on youtube if not THE most popular is this video surprisingly enough....

    A whole a$$ video of some people trying to be MSP cadets and a DI doing crazy sh!t... it has over a million views....And this is the official channel of an entire roleplaying community dedicated to specifically roleplaying as only the MSP LOL

    Wait...so you CANNOT wear motor boots anymore? Even in a video game?

    I bet Constables can wear them.

    That is pretty close to the EVOC refresher I had at Moore Airfield with Sgt. Lee in Spring 2018. Sgt. Lee is much more articulate and professional though than this LT.

    I think Gunnery Sgt. Hartman takes the cake as most "articulate"
