Here I'll ask the stupid questions just to get them out of the way.

Ch90? Take homes? Arrest powers?

Sorry couldn't help myself.

They actually have police powers on courthouse property. Sad thing is they still don't have no stinkin' guns...

If the Trial Court had over 1500 applicants last year when they posted for ACO and only hired 90 total out of that, I wonder how many applicants they are going to have for ACO and now CO. I applied for 3 different county's. I wish i knew how many they are going to hired this time around.This should be fun..lol

What a hell of a way to finish off your years of working. M-F, DAYS, INSIDE. I love my job, but I'm getting old and I want more opportunities to be on TV leading around prisoners.

Ok, before court officers start screaming at me, I'm not saying it's an easy job, it's just...M-F, DAYS, INSIDE and a nice paycheck to boot.

Anyone know what retirement system the probation officers fall under?
Not sure, but be wicked surprised if they were NOT under the Golden Group 4

Same as CO'S group 2. Been trying for group 4 for a while.

YES: Arrest powers(limited to court property only), group 2, cuffs and radio only, 2 week academy only(looking at increasing length), 6 months probationary period. nights, weekends and holidays off.

CO START PAY: $48,158 Current max: $73,302

Just to clarify the specifics...

COs have ALL the powers of a Police Officer on and "about the areas of the court". Every full moon or so a CO does have to run off court property to arrest someone. Its VERY rare, see MGL 221 S 70A (powers of a CO). Also "about the areas of" has never been clarified or argued.

We are the only court agency that is 100% unarmed and that is sad. But I'll say our new director (former chief of staff of the NCIS) and a few of us have already had a few good talks and we may just see some good changes over the next few years. Good luck to all!!

Just make sure you have a ticket book for CH.90, cuz your buddies (Magistrates) may toss some ULIARS arrests without a citation. And hopefully those changes come sooner than the next few years!

Anyone know if they are still hiring for these positions? After checking the website I found no mention for any Court Officers.
