Verrrry tough 'round these parts (but you already knew that)
I could only recommend Abington & Rockland Auxilliary Dept's to start. Attleboro is good.
Non-civil service towns like Hanson and Plympton may have reserves, but not sure.
Anybody else help out?

Speaking of Hanson, does anyone know what their status is? Do they announce openings or what? It looks like their webpage hasn't been updated since christ roamed the earth. Any info?

Wordstew,

Depending on where you live you may want to try the following communitees, I don't know if any or all still hire P/T or Reserve but here goes. Swansea, Somerset, Berkley. Like others said if you looking for experience try both Abbington and Attleboro Specials I have heard good things about both programs.

Wordstew,

Call Somerset. They hire reserve officers occasionally. They only pay like $8.50/ hr, but the go on the road with the full timers. They run a test for reserve officers occasionally. It is similar to the civil service exam. I took one about 2 years ago and scored #1. I ended up declining the interview for another position. Give it a shot.

If all you want is experience and no pay then try Randolph Aux.
NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Rockland/Attleboro/Whitman, etc. Randolph is arguably lower end of the scale.

Yeah good luck with some of these towns! Some are very political. I have been waiting to get on one of these listed towns for 2 years and I dispatch part time for them to. Just remember most small towns are politicial.

I don't know about Dighton, Berkley, Lakeville, or Freetown, but Seekonk is not currently accepting applications (no plans to anytime soon), Somerset hires off a written exam they run usually every 2 years (last one was around March 03), Swansea was recently accepting applications but the deadline has closed (no idea when they will be hiring again), and Westport recently was accepting applications but their deadline passed in September. Dartmouth and Acushnet hire Reserves off the Civil Service list.

I worked for Randolph Aux for 5 yrs, its only good for getting the R/I and having a Police job to put on your resume. You will do nothing except get to know town owned properties very well.
