Mandatory Police Training
In order to ensure that full-time police officers maintain their proficiency and stay current in all aspects of their job, per MGL, Ch. 41 §96B, the MPTC offers professional development training for them mandated by the Committee. Each of the MPTC Regional Training Academies offers Mandated Professional Development training [formerly in-service] to full-time municipal, University of Massachusetts and environmental police officers.
Annual Professional Development training is offered to reserve/intermittent police officers and is co-sponsored by the regional police training organizations and the MPTC.
