Top Reasons to Join UMPD

I'm a UMass Police Officer, and I love my job. It's always something new. It's always something different. It's always something challenging.

You have the benefit for extensive developmental training in the summer and the opportunity of community policing. 

It's not necessarily standard employment. It's a calling. I answered the call. I really do enjoy serving the community and helping people.

I wouldn't want be anything else other than a police officer. It has direct impact on people, and I think I'm making the world a better place.
