At the June meeting, the MPTC Committee voted to establish the following mandatory in-service training standards for chiefs of police for Training Year 2016 (July 2015 – June 2016).  These standards are in addition to the previously-approved veteran officer in-service training standards listed below.

  • Fair and impartial policing (half day)
  • Community engagement (two hours)
  • Developing legitimacy and procedural justice (half day)
  • Creating community collaborations for dealing with persons with mental illness (2 hours)

The Mass Chiefs of Police Association plans to include these topics in a conference slated to be held in late fall.  Notice of the dates and venues will be sent via the MCOPA and the MPTC once confirmed.
