Anti-gun flavor in Police Recruitment legislation????????????????????? Only in Massachusetts! Now I REALLY have seen it all. Wow! this out of the mouth of a Democrat? Can you actually believe this statement?
I'm sorry but this rhetoric actually scares me a little. Now "young adults" are somehow not qualified to be police officers and need to have weapons "taken out of hand"
Three words...."Massachusetts Police Corps"....didn't exactly work out. :roll:An interesting idea would be to have a sort of police ROTC.
Get all your BI's done, get vetted department side, then get some money to-wards school. During your school time you would work administratively in the department. You can check the department out, they can check you out...when done to the academy you go, sponsored by the town you graduate, you have a job.
Very good point about the summer special officers on the Cape. That is alot of good experience for someone wanting to get on the job, if they are off from college for the summer, able to work, and not 21 yet, they and the department get screwed. I know a few CJ students that have started out dispatching, decided to apply to Cape departments to work over the summer, and came back really squared away, alot more knowledgeable, and excellent candidates for a full-time job somewhere. There are pro and cons to everything. Maturity varies and it should be on a case by case basis in my opinion, not a knee jerk reaction and part of an anti-gun law.Now my question is...does this apply to all police officers or just full time. I started working as a summer officer when I was only 19, and it was a great experience. This law would essentially kill the summer gigs for college students which provides great experience...especially when applying for a non-civil service job right out of college.
