I don't remember if it is in MGL or somewhere else but my recollection is that auxiliaries have LE powers during a declared state of emergency.What WAS Auxiliary Police (existing under the umbrella of Civil Defense) have been Emergency Management Agencies. Whereas I doubt many, if any, possess law enforcement authority, the reform bill may not effect them, but it would be interesting to see.
Billerica has been Billerica Emergency Management Agency (BEMA) for as far as I can remember. No idea if they are still around or not.I once met a girl at a bar who told me she was on the job with the “Billerica Emergency Management Police”. I later found out that’s the most whacker way of saying ‘Billerica Auxiliary Police’ ever created. Idk what happened to her but she was a legit weirdo, does Billerica still have an APD? Just curious
