As a student and prospective patrolman, the federal community policing incentive program Police Corps sounded like a good idea. The application was lengthy but seemed very much worth it. An encouraging voice from S. Weymouth, the hq of the program led me to apply with haste in March of this year. I gave it a few weeks/months but received no response. The contact information I had no longer worked and the website (masspolicecorps.com) was gone. The USDOJ site no longer lists MA as a participating state. Can anyone tell me if this program has fallen victim to my cutback pal Mitt Romney? Thanks, this issue has been a challenge to resolve.

One of the MPC drill instructors is my Sgt. in my town, I recently was discussing the MPC with him and he mentioned to me that the Corps has been moved to Connecticut. Be advised, the program is run by federal grant money, so the sooner you get in the better off you are. Also , no it is not run by the state so Romney has no control over it, with the exception of certifing that its training is compliant with Mass standards. - best of luck, its a great program . j.t.

The last grumblings I heard about the mass police corps was that the program was shut down and they had packed their bags and moved out of state. There were several rumors floating around about what happened.

PBIDDY, they shut down the program due to too many instructors banging too many recruits. Alot of them lost their jobs. That the 411 on that subject.

I remember hearing from officers up to Chiefs how great this program was and it was the future and within a few years , policecorps would be the way departments hire in MA. Hahaha, too funny, only made it a couple of classes.

You said it..........................
EVERYBODY breathes the same air, has a brain and hormones. That what gives everybody the same potential for being human, Good or Bad. Once these "people" start stating/acting/printing they are the best. They have nowhere to go but DOWN!!!!!!!!!!!
