The following program is open to anyone who are interested in attending the Reserve/Intermittent Police Academy."Other police academies, which leave applicants to obtain the required sponsorship of a police chief on their own, Quinsigamond Police Chief Kevin Ritacco is offering to sponsor anyone who passes basic vetting for entry into the college's program (a CORI and SORI of each applicant will be conducted prior to any acceptance, forms are attached)."

The Reserve/Intermittent Police Academy, which is an entry-level training program will allow recruits the opportunity to be hired in a part-time reserve/intermittent position in which he or she will exercise police powers as a police officer. The academy consists of at least a minimum 372.5 hours of instruction per the Municipal Police Training Committee, MPTC Basic Recruit Curriculum for Reserve/Intermittent Officers.

In addition applicants who have a associates or bachelor degree, both in Criminal Justice combined with this Reserve Intermittent Police Academy will have the opportunity to be hired as a full time police officer at a majority of college police departments in Massachusetts. More likely than not that college police department will eventually require the officer to attend the next available full time police academy
