Mandatory In-service Training
In accordance with MGL Chapter 41 §96B, “Every police officer on a full-time basis in any such municipal police department, shall be assigned to and shall attend a prescribed course of study approved by the municipal police training committee for in-service officers...”
Each of the MPTC police academies offers mandatory in-service training to full-time municipal, University of Massachusetts and environmental police officers. This training is also open to any other police officer who is sponsored by the officer's department and on a space-available basis.
Annual Professional Development training is offered to reserve/intermittent police officers and is co-sponsored by the regional police training organizations and the MPTC.
