Northborough is a small town located in central MA with a fairly new station just over the line from MHQ in Marlborough. I believe they are looking to hire F/T academy trained but in the past they have had the candidate pre-selected with the interviews being all for show. They seem to be a very proactive CH. 90 department with new equipment every few years. We worked with NPD on a joint investigation this past year and all Officers involved where extremely hard working and squared away.
I think the last time they hired it was a couple of summers ago. I took the exam along with about 100+ other people for the 1 position. The exam was a shorted version of a civil service exam....complete with the fee. I have never heard anything negative about the department.
