    I believe they will send to MPOC. From their Facebook, it seems as though they have a lot of vehicles and gear. Far more then most colleges of that size.

    Saw one of their vehicles recently at a training. It had blue municipal police license plates. Only campus PD I've ever seen with those plates.

    Municipal plates on a state vehicle? Almost as confusing as the SSPO issue

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

    The UMass departments are going that route also, well, some of the vehicles. Must be a transitional period.

    I agree, it is confusing, and extremely inconsistent. Springfield tech community college and holyoke community college have the standard state plates.

    How can a State College vehicle receive plates, reserved for police vehicles belonging to a municipality? Its a state run/funded college and is a state owned vehicle. That makes as much sense as saying, I can slap on RI State Police plates on my cruiser because I live in the State of Rhode Island. I guess if sheriffs in MA can have municipal police plates, why not campus cops.

    Have you seen police plates in MA? While the prefix for the plate on the registration is MP (which is not on the plate, by the way) they say Police of the left side, Official on the bottom, and Massachusette on the top. They do not say municipal anywhere on the plate.

    Personally I don't think it's a bad idea because it lets folks with any confusion know that it is a police vehicle rather than just one owned by the state. Massachusetts State Police plates are a completely different animal.

    I am aware on Massachusetts police plates, it does not say municipal on the plate. However, the plates are reserved for municipal police vehicles. RI is the same, it is a light blue plate, with police on the left side with ocean state at the top and Rhode Island at the bottom, reserved for Municipal/City police vehicles. If slapping light blue plates on your cruiser, makes you feel like that much more of a cop, then do it.

    Long time lurker. First time poster. R/I and Mptc. Currently full-time.

    What are you ranting about. Municipal plates are on dpw/town hall etc vehicles. Municipal plates done make a car any more cop than they do it a dump truck. And BSU doesn't need blue plates to be cops. They are mostly Mptc trained ( fuck sspo..right? ... I'm not sure how that joke works...) And cross sworn to Bridgewater town. Would state plates ( since they are state employees and Leos) remove that hair across your ass or would you rant on about that?

    It appears that we are officially circling the Masscops thread derailment wagons...not over SSPO, but over police license plates on patrol vehicles.

    That's a first.

    As a parent, you may think differently if they were to get a positive hit on a wanted person or a stolen vehicle being operated by a violent fugitive camped outside of the resident halls. Just sayn'.

    Nothing like that ever happens on a college campus. Those cops should be out locking doors or giving students rides instead of running plates.

    And you know something, I don't think any grown ups give a shit they're doing this.

    Oh, here we go. First off, I don't care what plates you have on your cruiser. What I was pointing out, was the fact that if the DMV has a regulation for your vehicle, to have a specific plate, then put it on your car. If the DMV has decided that any law enforcement agency, can put whatever plates they want on their vehicles, then congratulations.
