Information for Aspiring Officers

How do I become a MSPCA Law Enforcement officer?

Individuals interested in pursuing a position as an MSPCA officer should send their intent in writing, along with a current resume to:
MSPCA Law Enforcement Department
350 South Huntington Ave.
Boston, MA 02130
(No phone calls please)

What qualifications does the MSPCA look for in a law enforcement officer candidate and what are the requirements for appointment?

Vacancies are only occasional, and competition for those vacancies is usually intense between those who wish to be considered for a position as a law enforcement officer. Generally, candidates who possess a bachelor’s degree, preferably in the field of Animal Science or Criminal Justice are given preferential consideration.  Also given serious consideration however, are candidates who have a significant level of prior experience working in the field of animal protection/welfare or law enforcement.

In addition, candidates must be able to successfully pass background investigations, psychological evaluation, and must must meet the requirements necessary to secure admission into and successfully complete a 22 week basic police recruit academy program sponsored by the Municipal Police Training Committee.
