What about Chapter 90?
What would you like to know? perhaps this part of CH90C/s.1?;

PART I. ADMINISTRATION OF THE GOVERNMENT

TITLE XIV. PUBLIC WAYS AND WORKS

CHAPTER 90C. PROCEDURE FOR MOTOR VEHICLE OFFENSES

Chapter 90C: Section 1. Definitions
"Police officer", any officer, other than an investigator or examiner of the transportation division of the department of telecommunications and energy, authorized to make arrests or serve criminal process, any person appointed by the registrar under section 29 of chapter 90, any person appointed by the trustees of the University of Massachusetts under section 32A of chapter 75, any person appointed by the trustees at each of the commonwealth's state and community colleges under section 22 of chapter 15A, and any person appointed by the colonel of state police under section 59 of chapter 22C.

Just to be clear that's all the cops in the UMass system, the State and Community College system, and the Department of Mental Health/Retardation.

Thanks for your service, but I really truly doubt that a campus police department is interested in your knowledge of WEAPONS.... Other than that, good luck.

You must have had a prior on your board, because most schools dont even want to know that you have a LTC unless it is required for the position.

Good Luck

Also, unless your already on the job "police work" is not taught in a college class.
