Can someone tell me, if you are a full time officer in a non civil service department and get hired in a civil service department, do you have to take the PAT test again?

A full time police officer in a non civil service department can not transfer in to a civil service department without having civil service status. PER MGL CHAPTER 31. :cry:

Harley, I am sure patrolman is aware of that. What he is asking is if you are already a FT OFFICER on a NON-CIVIL DEPT AND you get hired off the CIVIL SERVICE LIST do you still have to take the PAT even after taking it already. I did go through this process and HRD makes you take the PAT again, as well as the Medical Exam.

I had to take the PAT test when I went through for the academy(even though I was a self sponsored). Dept I work for is non civil service and I did not have to take it again. It's an easy test, but you should do some running and conditioning a month or so before it to be on the safe side.
