We are currently accepting 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 22 week full-time Police Academy committment. (not Reserve-Intermittent academy)
* NOTE: If you hold only a part-time, reserve-intermittent academy certification you must apply through the Police Officer: Entry Level process. Thank you.
