University Police Officer - Experienced Level - Full-Time Academy Required

Although we currently have no vacancies, we are continuing to accept applications for Lateral Police Officers on a continual basis. To qualify as a lateral police applicant you must have obtained a full-time Recruit Officer Course (ROC) academy certification for full-time police officers as required by M.G.L. Chapter 41 Sec. 96B, or the out-of-state equivalant as reviewed and approved by the MPTC *.  In Massachusetts, this is approximately a 24-26 week full-time Police Academy committment.

Submit your application online for the University Police Officer - Experienced Level positions.

* NOTE:  If you hold only a part-time, MPTC Reserve-Intermittent academy certification, you must apply through the Police Officer: Entry Level process.
