Hi guys,

There is an upcoming intermittent academy which requires a police chiefs signature to enroll. My question is how do you go about doing this? I live in Plymouth and do not know Chief Robert J. Pomeroy personally, nor do I know any Chiefs of Police. Do I mail him the application along with a letter stating that I would need his signature? I don't think this is important, but I am on the Plymouth's civil service list. Any help you guys can give would be much appreciated. Thanks again!

Rob

I think you would be better off seeing the Chief in person. I'm not sure how Chief Pomeroy is, but most Chiefs are 50/50 on this. Some will sign, some won't. I recommend trying Pomeroy first, if you strike out then try Chiefs in neighboring towns. Do you know any Lt.'s? They can often "help you out".

Campus Police Chiefs can sign it too... if you know anyone that can help from that angle...

Campus Police can no longer sign, unless its a state school MPTC does not seem to recognize any other agencies as Police. (This is according to my recent conversation with weymouth)

Reading and Boylston are still accepting Campus Police signatures...

Is Weymouth SSPI? They (SSPI) refuse to take Campus PD's... They are the only one that I know of that are declining Campus PD's... Not very nice, are they?.

Tiger,

my advice would be look around the towns around you and find an aux unit that will sign the paperwork for you. I know Randolph at one time had an active unit. Other than that make an appointment go in and see the chief in your town. It cant hurt to ask.

The Randoplh Aux. Police are still very active. Go to www.rapd.8m.com that is there web site. The deputy chief handles all of the hiring and signing of people, give him a call, he is very understanding and good to work with.

HEY!

For RES/INT you do NOT need the signature from a chief. Look at the form and check the MPTC website. The Training officer or a Sgt/Lt. will do.

You only need authorization/signature from Chief for the FT Academy.

Good Luck! :wink:

I am a Boston resident and was wondering if anyone knows what the possibility of someone from Boston PD signing for the Reserve Academy? I know that they have their own academy so the chances of this happening are pretty slim. Has anyone heard of this? I figure it will be at least a year and a half or more until the 2005 civil service test list comes out so I figure the reserve academy might be a good place to start for now. I work for a private college and from what I hear SSPI won't accept us anymore. My family is pretty tight with some very higher up's in the Boston PD but I don't want to ask and look like a fool. Any help would be great. Thanks

I was told by a program manager at Plymouth that they will not accept applications from private agencies. I asked this question regarding reserve inservice, and I know this person, and the answer was the same. You need a sponsor from a town...
