I applied there about 2 years ago. Made it to the final 3, but not the final cut. At the time they said that they were trying to get armed, but it was an uphill battle. I'm not sure if they finally did. The LTC could be for spray, which they do carry.

Good luck. Nice campus (I got my CJ degree there), great benefits & good pay for a campus PD.

no, they aren't armed...they carry the retractable baton. I'm actually getting a watchman's position there and should hopefully be starting soon :)

The Sgt's position is filled along with a patrolmans spot. There is no firearms. The LTC is for spray. If the watchmans job payed more there would be a line for the position. Easy work no one bothering you alot of down time.

Some places use the LTC as a screening tool. I have heard of private secuirty companies doing the same. While most Chiefs will issue anyone who meets the minimum requirements an FID, they are usually a little more careful with the LTC. That way if your local Chief won't give you an LTC a campus Chief might want to think twice about hiring you.

yea doin some training for the watchman's position today, but basically it sounds like I just walk around making sure buildings are secure, alarms are set, etc etc. I wonder if I get anything as protection just in case any wild and crazy Stonehill students are running amuck

First of all.. the officers at Stonehill don't call Eastern... the town is Easton... and the Easton guys rarely are on campus.. unless they are looking for a place to dig in... The watchman.. is on their own.. they lock up the buildings... secure alarms.. and report anything out of the ordinary..

I don't understand why other cops have to shoot down others.... Im sure your Milton cops come to help your public safety officers...
Speak of what you know... don't assume..

that's pretty cool, I wonder if I got put on as a reserve, if I'd be sworn in as a special in Easton

Its all good... I just hate it when information is not correctly stated... All officers are not Easton Specials... Not everyone chooses to go that route.. the watchman and parking lot enforcement officers have pretty cool gigs... but are mostly contained to their positions...
Its not a bad place to work.. it has its benefits..

Great school - I have hired three Stonehill grads over the last two years on my team - couple have now been promoted. Had great results there.

Looking for a job? ;-)

You can often find some on Bostonworks.com Type in "Police" in the search line. Otherwise just check each individual school's websites.
