    I think you have a solid theory. It seems like the departments that send their officers to an MPOC are quite comfortable with their authority under Chapters 75 and 73.

    FIFY. As well they should be since both Chapters give these departments their Full-Boat Police authority from the trustees, which mirrors that of Selectmen doing it in the towns under CH.41.
    :wink_smile:
    ANY U/Mass, State College, or Community College that also goes with adding the weaker SSPO Powers is just wasting money, showing their ignorance of the law and/or police operations, and letting the MSP Cert Unit exert undue influence. These "police" administrations at these State Schools that keep playing with SSPO are making a twisted convoluted soup. Same can be said for Sheriff's powers. DON"T need them! If what I'm saying was not true, then why don't municipalities get SSPO powers or sworn in as deputies? Right, because it would be STUPID! Fact 1. The ONLY Reason Massasoit must hold onto SSPO today is to keep two unjustly suspended officers from returning to duty. Fact 2. Years ago Chief Tillinghast at Bridgewater State P.D. flushed SSPO down the toilet, for the second time in a decade. There was a good reason. SSPO isn't necessary at these schools.

    Is this the real story? I heard the School never did any investigation or discipline. Seems like they just hope for the officers to fade away and die. Seems like their would some kind of route for these officers to sue the school or somebody responsible there.

    Read the NEW standards, the 4,000 hours is NO longer required for SSPO. An Auxiliary Officer with arrest powers (special) is now a qualifying element. And there is nothing worded about how long or how many hours they have to work. Big loop hole or a big ass mistake by MSP???

    Maybe, but his whole point is that MCCPD is hiring only people who have street experience, not just the R/I + degree.

    Most city & town police officers in Norfolk County are sworn as deputies.....Sheriff Bellotti will swear any officer in the county with the approval of their chief. It's not mandatory for us (it is for some PD's), but most of us are.

    Funny enough, it wasn't mandatory for us until a number of people said, "Not mandatory? No OT for the swearing in? I'm not bothering." THEN, lo and behold, it became mandatory!

    I had already gone. Figured if I didn't, it would somehow bite me in the ass, and not in the good way.

    Jim,

    I actually believe I met you Dad a few years back while I was doing a detail on the south shore. Was he rather TALL and using a cane in his later years? In any event, This much older than me gentleman was asking directions and he already recalled correctly were he was going. He had your last name, a retired badge, and a helluva handshake. Forgot to ask you this years ago. Back to the thread; Stick to the MGL CH.75/73 not needing SSPO/Sheriff powers you private-school flatfoot!:tounge_smile:

    Yes I read that.. it says 2 years... it doesn't indicate hours. So I work 8 this year and 8 hours last year, I'm good to go. Huge gap!

    The few Obama and Patrick supporters who actually want to work want to be 6-figure paper pushers, not cops.

    Only if it involves translation which requires me to call Mrs. Clohoe to determine "Their perspective" . My previous statement references to black and white text on the standards set forth by Col. McGovern.

    Yeah, thanks for the welcome back....

    My attempt at humor was lame. Please forgive your humble servant and know that you truly do have my undying respect.


    (In all seriousness, you guys do as important a job as anyone and you of all folks should KNOW I shit on NO JOB, just individuals.)

    Now Woody, let's hug!:wink_smile:

    In retrospect, there was nothing hurtful about this statement. I was just having a bad day and, well, until the midol kicked in got a little overly sensative.
