No academy for me... it's a Perminant Intermittent position... I completed the R/I Academy out of Waltham last summer...CapeCodPolice said:Good job Mike! What academy will you be attending? If you're looking at Plymouth, I'll see you there.
I understand where you're coming from... and believe me... if the last year as an Aux has taught me anything... it's to understand my place on the food chain...40th MPOC#309 said:Congrats to you Michael-remember your place on the food chain. Mouth shut, ears & eyes open etc. If your views or alliances are questioned such as Union affiliation or outlooks on certain co-workers etc., state you don't really know enough about the subject and don't take any position just yet. The time will come when it will be your duty to speak out about certain issues, but for now, LIE LOW. (I know you are aware of all of this-you seem like a smart kid.) Good Luck.40. 8)

Thanks Jimbo...jimbo said:congratulations Mike :thumbup: - is Ashland civil service ? seems like becoming an auxillary officer is a great way to get appointed to being a part time officer. where i work we have no auxillary or part time officers but it is my understanding that most departments that do, appoint the part timers to full time when a vacancy occurs. good luck !!
Mike gotta agree with you. Aux is a great place for those who are serious about being officers. You recieve a lot of training, and learn the "stuff" they don't teach in the academies.mv577 said:BTW... WAPD is accepting applications for Aux Officers... check out our website for more information
Thank you Sir!!!! and thank you for keeping my country free so that I can pursue this dream... :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup:EOD1 said:congrats bro! as i sit here in the middle east, waiting to come home i like reading posts like yours- it keepsw me motivated and look forward to coming home!!! good luck!
Hi Jeff... In Wayland you have to go through firearms training and pass the standard MCJTC Firearms Qualification... Wayland will not let you out on the road until so... It is set up through the department of course... and shot at their outdoor range in town... Our program ran for 6 weeks I believe... we did numerous drills and qualifications... low light, no light etc... MCJTC qual, MDOC qual, shotgun etc...jeff53339 said:Hey everyone, I was just looking at both of those websites, wayland and haverhill, and I noticed that it said haverhill aux carries after four month porb. period and after qualifying w/the dept. firearms instructor and completion of mcjta. Is the training academy they send you to the R/I, or do they just send you to different inservice trainings? And how does wayland work? Is that the R/I academy? Im just looking to get a foot in the door and gain some experience, and it seems that auxiliary is the way to go since not many depts are hiring/sponsoring for the R/I in my area. Thanks in advance for all your help.
