NONE! Just the MBTA[/quote

There are plenty of PD's that don't have a residency requirement. You'll have to do some research.
Every civil service town in Ma residents get preference over non residents except the MBTA. If your asking about residency requirements once you get hired its up to the individual towns. Civil Service rule is 35 miles but some towns require you to there once hired.

Has CS changed the 15 mile rule to 35 miles? If they did....it's long overdue.

Your right, I meant 15, sorry. Your right it is overdue, but to be honest I dont know how strictly some towns enforce it.

7MPOC is correct. I believe the ONLY exception to ranking ahead of residents (D.Vet,Vet or civilian) in any municipality is the son or daughter of a police officer/firefighter killed in the line of duty. There are not many of those sooooo, all municipalities covered under chapter 31 have a residency preference, except MBTA. The latter is, of course, not a municipality.
