Are other state university/community college PD's allowed to join regional mutual aid agreements or is UMA only allowed to?
Haha. I remember that....public apology for a minor parking snafu in Boston where most "creatively" park. Gimme a break. Got a good laugh from the comments as well.I don’t remember the exact wording but Command Staff calling out an officer for parking illegally on Columbus Ave and the subsequent “talking to” he received. I will see if I have it saved.
There is and never been an MOU between Harvard and any municipality nor has a Cambridge or Boston Cop ever ridden with a Harvard Cop, so I've been told. The cooperation in the past several years has been outstanding, and Harvard's bike cops have participated in the group efforts in recent years, though that may end as whiney student dissidents are becoming more vocal.Haha.

On the MOU topic, there's tons of college PDs who have formal agreements. I know BC, BU and Harvard use to run a joint car together, BPDs "gang car", to curtail off campus student issues. The big college departments around the city also have a MOU for mutual support as it relates to big events or deployment of the COBRA unit. At the end of the day though, college PDs inherently exist as a selling point for the big $$$ education ticket. There's some PDs that will let you be proactive but there's also some very solid parameters in place...as there should be because ultimately calls for service relating to non student related/off campus property is the responsibility of the municipality. Be happy with the job you take, don't try to turn it in to something its not. I say that with respect to all the PDs out there.
I really hope that's the case.Northeastern is great and Harvard is emerging from Dark Times where EVERYONE was totally miserable due to an insane dictator running the show. He's left and a new dawn is said to be breaking thanks to new leadership.
That's what I've heard.
