    A bachelor's degree, full time academy, and two years full time police experience. Are they still getting enough qualified applicants with those requirements?

    Northborough, Concord and a few more require a bachelor's degree now too.

    I've seen the degree in other postings, just don't think I've seen the full academy and 2 years of full time police experience along with it

    SO, Just curious. I know some officers with 10 years on, and don't have a degree. Just curious what the bachelors degree covers with 10+ years on. Just odd.

    College degree requirement was implemented and requested by the town. It is a contractual requirement for employment now.
