Looking for dept name and any details on college/university PD's (in Mass) with officers cross sworn as deputy sheriffs or town specials, etc.... in addition to their SSPO powers?

Also depts with properties owned, leased or used sprawled throughout town where they are consistently finding officers in transit on public streets between properties and policy for extra territorial arrest.

UMASS Lowell PD officers are deputy sheriffs through Middlesex County. They answer any call in the city of Lowell that invovles a UML student.

Emerson is sprawled all over the theater district/back bay and we run into situations all the time within 10 feet of our nearest building. The chief wants us to just call Boston and not get involved. If it is something major and the officer has a desire he/she will act and get the wrath of the chief in the morning or sometimes next week. By the way, we run only SSPO

Framingham State College Police Jurisdiction and Authority:

The Department handles all law enforcement duties in conjunction with the campus and also patrols the streets and areas contiguous to the College, traveled by students and faculty to and from the campus to area parking lots and public transportation locations. Sworn members of the department are employed by Framingham State College and serve the institution as police officers.

It is not the policy of the agency to infringe upon the primary responsibility of other agencies including the Framingham Police Department and Massachusetts State Police in areas not owned, used or occupied by the College. However, officers maintain a close working relationship with those agencies and cooperate routinely on police responses in the area.

Sworn police officers of the Department are sworn in by the the Massachusetts State Police as Special State Police Officers granting the "same power to make arrests as regular police officers for any criminal offense committed in or upon lands or structures owned, used or occupied by such college…" Subsequent to their appointment, officers are also sworn in as deputy sheriffs of Middlesex County, allowing the officers to perform police functions on the public ways of the county. Officers are also charged with the duty of performing parking enforcement on the campus property, as well as the Town of Framingham public ways.

The department enjoys a close working relationship with the Framingham Police Department, the Massachusetts State Police, the Middlesex County District Attorney's office and District Court officials, the Massachusetts Attorney General's office and several other city and town agencies on court proceedings, investigations and matters pertaining to more than one agency of the Commonwealth or a surrounding municipal authority.

You can add Northeastern Univ. PD to the list.

They have MA State Special powers and Suffolk Ct. Sheriff powers.

For incidents off university property, covered by above., they refer to General Order 80-5 which states that the Dept. with primary jurisdiction in the area where the offense occurred should be notified and offered the arrest. If they decline, then the arrest is made by the NUPD officer.

I do not believe that Umass Lowell Police Power's are derived through a Sheriff's Dept.
"ejk," my friend...Why must you challenge me? :wink: :lol: I know what I'm talking about. They are SPO's and Middlesex County Dep's... I know this because I was sworn in at the Sheriffs Office with some... you screw!

You are right. I graduated from UMass Lowell 2 years ago and worked closely with the PD. They are SPO's and Middlesex County Dep's. I was the director of operations for the university's ambulance service for a couple of years.
