Ready? In order to get around the 32 year of age limit, you have to file a "Home Rule Petition". This consists of getting your State Rep. to file a Bill, specifically for you, in your town, and get passed in both the House and Senate. If you are a former Civil Service police officer, within the past five years, it is a lot easier. All you have to do is get a reinstatement from the appointing authority (M.G.L. Ch. 31 Sec. 46). You cannot sue for age discrimination. The ruling for public safety age requirements have been upheld in every State, so don't hire a lawyer to fight it.
