    OMG MPD!
    Let's not have another tirade about Chapter 73 and 75 and how Massasoit screwed up with inviting the MSP in with SSPO!

    Umass are now by law required to attend only FT MPTC academies which is great.

    The requisition number no longer exists on the Umass website. Wow... That was QUICK.

    Doesn't the MPTC only allow municipal recruits to attend their academies? I remember going to in-service in Plymouth with a hodge-podge of different agencies, then one year it was suddenly all city and town PD's.

    ^ Um, pretty sure they will take you as long as your from a legitimate department. I had a former co-worker self sponsor to the Lowell MPTC Academy. Our old campus chief signed off on it and then he was in. In-service just depends on who wants to pay to physically send someone to an academy. Most use MPI online now.

    All the MPTC cares about is, what color your money is.

    Hence allowing all the self sponsors, I know for the RI municipal academy you need to not only be signed off by a dept but also have a job waiting for you by that dept when you graduate

    New legislation now gives the MPTC domain over the entire UMASS system. They are also opening the doors again to other non municipal agencies (e.g. private college PD's) when seats are available and only after the municpal agencies get first crack at it. That goes for recruit and specialized training.

    I'm a little confused. UMASS police officers are no longer trained under the SSPO program, but instead through the regular municipal program?

    I don't think the MPTC sees any money from the Lowell Academy.

    From the MPTC website.

    MPTC Mission and Vision

    The mission of the Municipal Police Training Committee is to set and enforce training standards, to identify and meet the training needs of the municipal, University of Massachusetts, and environmental police officers of the Commonwealth, to facilitate the delivery of up-to-date, state-of-the-art training, and to document training. At the same time, the MPTC must be responsive to the needs of municipal and University of Massachusetts departments, the Massachusetts Environmental Police, and the communities they serve.

    When I went through the academy, not only could you not self-sponsor, you had to be receiving a full-time paycheck from your sponsoring agency. And yes, they did check....I had to submit photocopies of my pay stub at random intervals.

    The good old MPTC DID kick out 99% of non-municipal agencies around 2005 primarily (not entirely) due to a spike in the anti-sheriff politics of the time. We used to go to Veteran in-service at Plymouth, as well as many professional development courses then WHAM! No non-municipal departments allowed. Shortly afterwards ALOT of towns budgets started going down the drain, and courses started to open up again to other agencies to fill seats. Hell...Look at the SPA in New Braintree; they're running MPOC courses now so they don't get shut down with the lack of any RTT's. It's all about the money in the end...
    :wink_smile:
    BTW...J809 did NOT self-sponsor himself to the Weymouth Academy. He was actually left at the gate in his baby blanket at the old Naval Air Station...HEE HEE!!

    This isn't a bad gig, they'll put you through FT academy (although their last hire already had it), state bennies and union.

    That time frame sounds about right...I do remember some in-service classes were almost half-full of gray shirt Plymouth County Sheriff people....a bit absurd, if you ask me.

    I think that lack of funding also played a big part. I believe MASS is now 2nd to last in the Country for the amount of State funding allocated per Officer for Police training. I think that's also around the same time the MCJTC became the MPTC.

    Does anyone know what shift they're hiring for? I know most hospitals have a huge overnight shift differential so I wasn't sure if they would be hiring for day shift or not. Just curious if anyone knew

    I would suspect (and this is purely speculative on my part) that there is not a HUGE differential because they are technically employees of Umass Medical School, and not the hospital. I think it's a pretty normal differential.
     
  24. Kilvinsky

    Kilvinsky I think, therefore I'll never be promoted.

    I don't think UMass was EVER trained in the SSPO program. I know even BEFORE I was employed there 30 years ago they went through the muni. academy.

    I KNOW Amherst set the standard and Boston and Worcester followed suit.

    Unless you're talking about Lowell and Dartmouth, but I think they also changed years ago. I could be wrong on that.
