The First SPMA has completed their 19th week of training. The weeks training included Active Shooter Training, Radar certification, Breath Test Operator certification and Applied Patrol Procedures. The second day of Applied Patrol Procedures challenged the student officers with another 15 scenarios; to date they have satisfactorily completed 30 scenarios per student. The classroom lessons learned during the last 19 weeks are being put to the test with hands on applications. This week experienced officers from Andover, Milton, Worcester, Marlborough, U-Mass Amherst, and the Environmental Police assisted in the scenario based training.
