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

    This was one of those job postings from the Commonwealth that would, if printed, used 29 pages. FUCK that. I cut the hell out of it. I also wonder about the "Anticipated Vacancies". Are they firing a shitload of people or just expanding the department. The place had a great reputation so I'm HOPING for the latter. Please "PERSONNEL" departments at the state level, TRIM THE DAMN JOB POSTINGS TO NOVELLA STATUS! WTF????

    I love the school and the area. If only they paid a respectable salary I’d go in a heartbeat.

    Goose The list is long but distinguished. Staff Member

    According to the job posting (muni academy + sworn in for the Town of Salem), it appears they are rightly not using SSPO!

    They were SSPO for a long while; the last few new guys have been MPTC which surprised a few people I know there. They just don't take SSPO waivers due to their agreement with Salem.

    I want to say two of the projected vacancies are officers they sent to the SSPO that are leaving for other ventures. All vacancies are due to people moving to other departments for better pay/opportunity. Word is they're also going to be tossing up 3 or so dispatch openings soon-ish. Not much has changed there since I spent some time there - It's a uni dpt, so expect a lot of down time when school's out/building checks/dealing with drunk kids that puke in the showers. But you also get the option to work SPD details & juri within Salem. There have been some hinky bits in regards to that, but it was nice overall. That, and group 2 retirement with a 20+ step raise system or something like that.

    5&2 schedule, you build 1:1 comp time when school is closed, ability to use zero-notice personal days, finally got patrol rifles, and fleet's being recycled to new Exploders. Sergeants are young so likely not much upward mobility any time soon. People there have their own opinions about the West Wing, but I like & respect them. Every department has some quirks, and SSUPD is no exception.

    Overall? Fantastic place to start and if you actually want to do some work that's not entirely 'building checks.'

    It's crazy that a department can justify getting their officers patrol rifles...while the state still considers them group 2. If your potentially dealing with situations that call for the use of a rifle, you'd think group 4 would be more appropriate.

    Just saying that departments like that should be group 4.
