What area are you from? Most towns have at least a proximity requirement. Also Aux. Departments vary quite a bit town to town. Waltham is very squared away but very limited as to what they can do. Towns tend to utilize Aux's (like Wayland) much more than cities, as they dont have the number of Regulars to cover the activity. Some Aux Depts. do carry and are sworn. Depends on the experience and level of committment you are looking for.
