Periodically the MPTC is contacted by police departments across the state who are hiring entry-level patrol officers and looking for a list of police academy graduates who have not been hired.
For this reason, the MPTC is piloting a service to maintain such a list and to share it with the police agencies of the Commonwealth upon request.
Police departments requesting the list:
The list is made available to police agencies upon request.
- To request the list of Certified Sponsored Graduates police agencies should e-mail Pat Caggiano, MPTC Recruit Officer Coordinator.
Sponsored graduates request to add your name to the list:
To have your name added to the list you must meet the following criteria:
- You have successfully completed the prescribed course of study for a fulltime police officer as mandated by MGL C41 §96B and 550 CMR §3.03 (3)

What you should know
The MPTC is piloting this service as a courtesy to police departments and student officers but reserves the right to discontinue this service at such time as the MPTC determines it no longer has the resources necessary to continue the service or if demand does not warrant continuing it.
- Please refer to 550 CMR §3.03 (3) which states "any graduate from a police academy who does not become employed as a police officer within two years must re-attend a police academy prior to exercising police powers."
- Please do not contact the MPTC and do not expect to receive updates from the MPTC.
- The list will be made available to police departments upon request.
- You will only be contacted if a police department is searching to fill a patrol officer's position, requests this list, and decides to contact you. Consequently, do not rely on this list as your sole means of seeking a career in policing.
- You are encouraged to continue to actively solicit employment and to rely on this list as only one part of that effort.
