Does anyone have any useful info on Simmons? What is the pay like for the open Sgt./Investigator position? I noticed that they want a valid LTC. Do they carry? Any info is much appreciated. Thanks!

I hear that their midnight Sgt. did 20 years on the Roger Williams Police Department. Word of mouth is that he headed up their swat team also. So I am assuming that the place is pretty squared away. If anyone knows anything about him, or the department, please post it.

Old thread, but I'm new to these forums. :D

I did IT support for Simmons College 2001-2002 and my Wife and I attended an exhibit at Simmons a few weeks ago, so I can offer somewhat up-to-date info.

The director of security is Gerry Chaulk. Gerry seemed to be a nice guy, retired Captain (IIRC) in Chelsea or Everett PD. His top ranking officers were Simmons employees, but everyone below that was a contract security guard. NOBODY was armed at the college.

It's also a very strange place for straight males to work at! It has a very high percentage of gay-lesbian students (it is basically an all girls school) and employees and very few males working there (exception might be for faculty) . . . this was even admitted to me outright by one of the Personnel Reps and a VP (who is straight).

It was also a very difficult place to work post-9/11 as there was an almost unanimous anti-war sentiment on campus.

When we were there a few weeks ago, I stopped by Gerry's office just to say hello in case he was in (he wasn't). Let's just say that the contract guards (don't recall what the patch said) that I saw that day (a Sunday) were 5 very unprofessional looking young guys . . . three were hanging out having a smoke on the front steps of the main building when I entered the building and one was in the same place much later in the day when we walked back out that same door.

Not sure how much truth there is to this.. But I heard that Simmons is trying to replace the entire Staff with Campus Police Officers, no more contract guards. A heck of a change in just a few years...

Don't believe everything you read especially on the Simmons web page. It is very out of date the place is making some big changes how big only time and money will tell. Gerry Chaulk is an excellent boss though I think most that have worked for him would agree with that.

Actually Gerry came from the Revere Police Department...
Jack, thanks for the correction. I'll blame the error on "old age", it's been a while since I talked with Gerry and us South Shore folks consider everything across the River "up there". :mrgreen:
