Rumor has it that UMLPD is looking for a Captain and a Chief. Anyone have any information on the current situation there ? I have seen some pretty negative posts, but also heard that the pay is good and there is a lot of police work to be done.
UML will be looking for a new chief, I don't know about the Captain's position. (they don't tell us much) We currently have 1 Captain running the show while the "chief" has been on leave for almost a year. We have another Capt. that has been on military duty for almost 2 years. We have 4 Sgts. and 10 police officers - 2 more student officers in the Plymouth Academy and intent to hire some more officers with this new round of oral boards.
As for the pay, we are working off a pay scale from a few years ago, and good 'ol Gov. Mitt just cut our hope of getting some retro pay. There is a lot of policing to do, but on the other hand you can be as busy or as quiet as you want to be with a few exceptions. If you can understand that the University is priority rather than the city, you will be fine as a campus police officer.
Feel free to PM me if you have any specific questions.
