Hey guys, I'm well aware of what SSPO powers gives campus police officers and also what they don't give you on a private campus. I currently do not work on a private campus anymore but for a local PD part time. Which is much nicer feeling not worryint about over stepping my police powers! was just wondering if being sworn as a SSPO holds an officer back on a state campus since it appears under Ch73 they don't need it, so my question is if your sworn as SSPO and Deputy can you still act on MgL ch73?? When I look at departments like bridgewater state they do not use SSPO and they have full police powers as well as seems like very squared away department. I know there have been topics very similar to this but my biggest question would be does SSPO actually hold you back when for example stopping a MV for something like driving down a wrong way street, could that be breach of peace under being sworn in ad deputy sheriff?? Also I'm not trying to get into a debate about SSPO v city PD, just looking for some information. AlsO sorry for typos doing this on my phone..Thank you!
