Any ideas on why Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital is hiring Police officers, and thinking that they are gonna get "Full MCJTC Academy" graduates with bachelors degrees to work there?? If you had those qualifications wouldnt you try to work for a non civil service town, preferably a town with the QUINN bill, until you get hired from the CS list? Just curious on people's thoughts.

I hear NEMC is doing the same,lol just kidding Sauce.

Who know's maybe it has something to do with the state special licensing, thats the only thing I can think of. Becuase of the qualifications for SSPO have the full time MCJTC and or Ba degree as part of there qualifications. Thats sounds more feesable.

From what I've heard the guy they brought in to start up this new PD is a real Hard Charger. I was told that the guy wants people to see this new PD as a respectible PD and not just a bunch of security guards with arrest authority. I wish him luck and hope that he can accomplish a very large task. I'm sure that it's going to take a while for the employees there to look at these officers any differently, after having contract security for so many years.

sully161,
Maybe you and I should wipe the years of dust off the stripes and go back :eek: . Just kidding
. I hope that I didn't scare you.

Well, if what you heard is true then all the power to him, I wish him luck he has his work cut out for him. That would be a good thing if he accomplish's that goal, maybe he can set a new presedent for other area Hospitals and campus police thats the way it should be.

BIDMC Employment webpage dosent list any officer positions that I could find, but they had 3 'Patrol Sargeant' jobs posted. They "prefer" the MPOC and a degree, but not listed as a requirement.

I posted this somewhere else but I will do it here also. The BIDMC is starting a police department, the chief of the department was a capt. at MIT and the dep. chief was a sgt. at HUPD. This is legit and I hear the pay is going to very good (better than some non-civil services depts). They will be armed and have full police powers. They will patrol the outside and the security dept will patrol the inside and work in conjunction with each other.

I checked the Beth Isreal site for job postings for these positions last night, and nothing came up. Anybody have any idea where to find these? I'm sure some of my NSMC friends would be interested.

Pearl,
go under employment and type in police, they are listed as patrol sergeants (3) and patrol officers (3). Also if you go to boston.com (Boston Globe) and type in police they are listed there also. Hope this helps.

Thank you HUPD, I did find it later. Seems that if I go online at a more normal time (not 3AM), I tend to find things better. ;)

Also for now, please post any replies to this forum. There is a similar topic in Getting on the Job. I am trying to get one of the other moderators to leave a note there and lock that topic on that forum, so we can all talk about this in one place. It'll be more productive that way.

Does anyone know anyone up there or have any inside info on what the pay scale is going to be? If the price is right, I might be interested myself, being a part time hospital guy and all. I already printed the listing and left it in a few guys boxes at NSMC.

I was given this site by one of my officers. Not sure if you have had other Chiefs respond:

BIDMC Public Safety does have openings for both certified police officers and also security officers, dispatch and some supervisors.

We are looking at hiring over 70 positions over the next year.

There are many reasons for this and we are currently in the process of making several large purchases of equipment and software.

We are currently looking at hiring 9 Patrol Officers and 3 Sergeants. 53 security officer positions and 5 supervisors. I almost forgot the dispatch - 7 positions.

We have our charter for Special State Police for police and security will be trained on site using IAHSS standards and CJIS/NCIC is on the way.

That is the need for the academy or other requirements in the job. We have minimum standards for the SSP Powers and warrants.

Pay will be competitive and we are looking for those officers who have some experience and want to move onto a larger urban department - that want to work in a health care environment and understand community policing and team work.

We will be a team approach department, working within a large medical center environment (3 campuses) that includes patients, visitors, research and all the things that a campus police department deals with. Along with a trauma 1 ED and helipad. Community policing and team building will be the focus for the department and officers may have to perform some duties not normally associated with "police" to include patient restraints and services that happen with a large campus.

If your interested please go to the BIDMC web site and down load an application or you can request one from HR. The contacts are:

Deputy Chief James McCarthy 617-632-8306 for police postions. [email protected]

Lt. Ethan Schnabel 617-632-8307 for security and dispatch positions. [email protected]

Thanks for your time and interest.....

I believe the starting pay for police officers is in the mid 40's and the sergeants pay is in the mid 60's. If any one is really interested in this position send me an e-mail and I will find out the real deal from Dep. Chief McCarthy who used to be a sgt. on my job.

My question is what are they going to do there. All the best to them and if they are going to get paid a boat load, sign me up. No disrespect to the officers who are going to be working there, but what is the job description going to say. :roll:

we all know that rumor mills never pan put, but if your interested in applying at beth israel i would suggest sending your resume and coverletter to the chiefs office and it will be held on file. Academy trained ofcrs are preferred...............we have a wide range of experienced ofcrs working there......ofcrs from LAPD :twisted: , NYPD, Retired Boston and Brookline Ofcrs. there are also2 guys from MGH that bring in Great hospital knowledge for us big city cops...........

The dept is a good place to work, however, being a BRAND NEW agency, we are still hitting a few bumps in the road, just go with the flow and enjoy the ride until it smooths out. Besides, we still get paid every thursday, weather we go balls to the wall, or slip under the radar.....

Oh yeah, getting back to the resume thing and rumor mill.........

October is looking pretty good........ \:D/

well the job is going extremely well....
the middle of july we had 2 weeks of training.... Defensive tactics and firearms. our issue firearm is glock 22.

we have a great bunch of guys and gal......
the sgt's are never looking over our shoulder and they are very supportive.

our only function is criminal matters, the public safety side (security) handles the lockouts and escorts, and morgue runs...unlike some other hospital "police depts".

the best part of the job is we get paid every THURSDAY !


hope this helps out......

:twisted:

BIDPD armed yet? How many PO's do they have? How many do they have per shift? Locking many folks up yet?

My understanding is they promised the guys over there the world, i.e. Full academy, great training and great money...but how long can it last? BID has been in financial ruins for the last few years, how long will they foot the bill?

How's the Chief?
