Do Umass Dartmouth Police Officers carry firearms?
I don't know too much about the department, but knowing Chief Shaw (Ret) for many years, if he has any involvement planning, consulting, or advising for that department, I would suggest that it must be squared away. Take it for what it is worth.j809";p="54600 said:Very squared away department. The old Massasoit PD Chief Shaw that did allot for that department is in charge of setting up recruiting and testing. It is a very busy department, a former patrolman from MCC is now a Sergeant there and he is very squared away. Nice equipment, lots of OT and details that they absolutely cannot fill, Dartmouth PD works them. The department from what I hear is growing allot because the school is growing very fast. There are numerous new buildings going up and they have allot of off-campus satellite sites as well. They do carry firearms, they were looking for FT academy but I think as long as you can get a waiver SSPO with a 4 yr degree you can apply.
