    So, I know summer is about to start and I probably missed most of the application processes but I am asking for any information. I recently didn't get a job as a reserve in a town where I thought I 100% had the job. Long story short I didn't. Is any town in MA looking for reserves or auxiliary? Thanks for the help.

    If you are close to western mass. Most towns are part time employment only. Also Cape/islands look for summer help.

    Most towns in western mass aren't part-time employment only.

    Sorry. Let me explain, a great deal of towns are part time (because I don't know first hand or anything)! Apparently I needed to be corrected. Thus, I change my course of comments. Glad niteowl was here for me

    11-out of 24 towns in Hampshire County are part time
    16-29 towns in Franklin County are part time (two not really having a police department).
    17- 30 towns in Berkshire County (one not having a real police Department)
    39 towns out of 83 are part time ONLY...most MOST hire part timers in lieu of maybe one or two full timers.

    Dover never advertises for their reserves, its always word of mouth and you need a hook. At least that's how it was prior to the McGowan era.

    I would try Hull PD, they have seasonal officers that seem to be proactive. Like anything else, research the towns near you and do your homework.

    I have done a lot of homework, but because its so late in the season towns have already hired their specials. I was curious if you knew any towns looking to hire a few more reserves or something of the same equivalency

    What part of the state do you live in? If you live closer to Boston you may be SOL. Many towns closer to Boston don't have reserves and if they do, its a CS appointment. Like I said, keep checking with towns closer to where you live to see if they have reserve officers. Other then that, check this website and local department websites.

    Just my thoughts, put together a resume and I would go to every non civil service town that's a about a 30 minute drive from where you live and see if you can drop off a copy, or ask if you could get an application. It may take awhile to hear back but it's worth a shot. Understand that there's a lot of politics in play at most of these places but you could still get lucky. You may have to wait awhile before you hear back from a dept.

    I think Whitman is making all their auxiliaries part-time R/I .

    If you have an extra 4 or 5 grand laying around and want to self sponsor..............

    I live in dedham, and they aren't hiring. My dad tried getting me on but they aren't taking anyone. I ended up going to Newton but they are unpaid.

    Did you even look? Almost every town around you has reserves. Berkley, Dighton, Middleboro, Lakeville, Freetown, Rehoboth, Rochester. If you can't do the leg work, then you don't deserve the job.
