    The MA-VLEOA is pleased to announce that it is currently accepting applications for the awarding of a $500 Officer Sean Collier scholarships to the Municipal Police Training Committee (MPTC) Reserve Academy. Applications will be accepted through March 15, 2017 and the scholarship recipient will be announced on April 18, 2017.

    The Officer Sean Collier scholarship was established in 2013 to honor the memory of Officer Sean Collier who was killed in the line of duty on 18 April 2013 while working with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Police Department.  Officer Collier started his law enforcement career as an auxiliary officer in Somerville, Massachusetts.  Through the efforts of the MA-VLEOA, this scholarship will ensure that Officer Collier’s name remains in the forefront of auxiliary and reserve officers in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts by providing scholarships to the MPTC Reserve Academy.

    Applicants must be either planning to attend an academy or currently attending an academy at the time of application. Applicants must be members in good standing of the MA-VLEOA, through either an individual membership, or as part of their Department’s membership at the time of application through payment of the scholarship. Awards will be made by a committee based on a review of your application and essay. Any Scholarships awarded will be paid to the applicant after one year of post academy volunteer service with their agency. This is a competitive process, with limited awards.

    MPTC Reserve Firearms Course Overview

     

    The MPTC Reserve / Intermittent Academy now offers a firearms training program as part of the recruit curriculum. In line with the abbreviated nature of the R/I Academy, this firearms program dedicates 20 hours to building a base level of proficiency for the recruit. To increase the amount of material presented to the recruit, a portion of the classroom material is being presented in this online format. The material selected for this presentation has been selected because it can be readily self-taught.

     

    As with all recruit level training, the assumption is the recruit has no prior experience with firearms so safety is our paramount concern. You will be walked through the basics before you are expected to handle tactical exercises. Recruits with prior firearms experience through hunting, target shooting or in the military should not feel this basic information does not apply to them. Law enforcement use of the firearm differs greatly from what you may have experienced as a civilian or soldier. This program will greatly assist you in transitioning for your new role.

     

    The MPTC Recruit Firearms Manual (RFM) is the “student manual” for this program. This online student manual is designed to provide you with an abbreviated version that will present the material in a clear and concise manner so that you will be able to complete the review questions at the end of the program. If you have questions after completing the online module, your instructor will set aside a block of time in the first training session to answer them.

     

    The full time academy dedicates over twice the training time for this topic that makes this program a challenge for both the recruit and the instructor. It must be understood that this program is merely the first step in what must be continuous training. Twenty hours is only sufficient to give the new officer the basics in safety and marksmanship. It is not enough to turn out a proficient marksman. Building the officer’s proficiency will be the joint responsibility of the officer and their department firearms training staff.

    The Massachusetts Volunteer Law Enforcement Officer Association and Point of Aim, LLC www.pointofaimfirearms.com have partnered to bring exclusive training to Volunteer Officers serving their communities in Massachusetts.

    As we all know the civil defense laws that many auxiliary officers are granted their authority date back to 1950. We are also aware of the complexity of the firearms laws in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. What this training provides is an understanding of the intersection of these two distinct laws, as well as an overview of use of force as it applies to auxiliary officers. Simply put the intersection has various shades of gray that you want to understand.

    What this class will cover is:

    • The critical role and history that Auxiliary Police Officers play in the delivery of public safety services
    • An overview of the Emergency Management Laws in Massachusetts as they pertain to auxiliary police
    • Differences between Auxiliary Officer use of force (Civilian Standard) vs. Law Enforcement
    • Use of Force definition and laws as they pertain to Auxiliary Officers
    • Firearms Safety, Equipment and Maintenance
    • MA Firearms Safe Storage Laws and options
    • MA Firearms Transport Laws (Vehicles/personal carry/prohibited places)
    • Off Duty Carry
    • LEOSA and the auxiliary officer
    • Model Auxiliary Policy Review

    This training will be provided  by:

    Chief Vincent C. Alfano (Ret.)

    Chief Alfano holds a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Public Administration from Norwich University, Northfield, Vermont. His private sector experience includes; ten (10) years in corporate security management for a Fortune 250 high tech computer firm. Chief Alfano’s law enforcement career includes; nineteen (19) years with the Framingham Police Department leaving as a Lieutenant, commanding the Bureau of Administrative Services and Training. He served as Executive Officer of the department’s Special Operations Unit, Commander of the Firearms Training Unit and as the Liaison to the Framingham Auxiliary Police for over 10 years.

    In 2006, he was appointed Chief of Police for the Town of Bolton, Massachusetts where he served as Chief until his retirement in 2015. He has served on many State committees regarding firearms law and training, including Chairman of the Massachusetts Chiefs of Police Association Firearms Committee. Chief Alfano has received numerous Firearms and Pepper Spray Training Instructor certifications from Industry, State and Federal law enforcement organizations, as well as the National Rifle Association. Having served as a Chief of Police he is very familiar with firearms law and the Massachusetts firearms licensing process.
