Is it just me, or do they post this Per-Diem Sergeant thing at least every 6-8 months? What is the story there?

Their Sgt.’s are essentially patrolman. The rank is simply because they supervise the public safety guys that check ID’s at the dorms.

So think of it as a per diem Officer.

Pharmacy was my first gig back in 2008 and they were paying about $15.00 back then for per diem / part time. Very low key, no heavy lifting, the school treats you pretty well in terms of benefits and compensation for the full time staff. I remember getting a $100 visa gift card from the admin as a “bonus” around Christmas time. The full timers got over $200 I think.

Point being it’s a decent gig if you don’t mind a low key, security-ish type role. Not much in the way of police work going on, but it’s a good side hustle for anyone looking to make some extra money.

They get details for events at the school like any other college.

Exactly what I pictured. I spoke to a ranking officer several years ago and he couldn't say enough GOOD about the place. I never pictured it being a rockin'/rollin' department, but very few college departments are, and that's not a slam (I work at one, REMEMBER?). I can't see it as being a bad job, and would love to consider it myself in a few years.

Though with MY luck, I'd be sent to Worcester. :(
