Does anyone know what the Massport Police do? I know that Logan Airport is patrolled by the MSP..so where do these folks patrol...and what types of duties do they have?
As far as training goes they generally will go to the SSPO academy from what I've been told, as far as requirements to get the job well knowing a big name politician would be a start..What kind of academy certification are they looking for? Do they send you off to 22 weeks of traning or do they require you to have that before being considered :?
My understanding is that since MPAPD is a State Agency under SSPO Powers and is not a Recognized/bona fide LE Agency, that guys with Full-time academy would lose their FT Academy Cert. because they would not have been working for a "Police Department". So if you have FT academy and you go to MASSPORT and say like 6 years later you want to go back to a Municipal PD, you would have to go through the Academy again..... Because you (FT Cert.) cannot be out of LE for more than 5 years.Massport PD is a great job with good salaries and the ability to work lots of o.t. and details. You should be able to make 70k pretty easy. There is still a lot of work to be done to be considered a bona fide PD, But the potential is there. Training is also pretty good with the new active shooting program in place(paintball for cops). I encourage academy trained individuals to check it out(massport.com) under the job title of Port Officer.
My "other" job.
