The Massachusetts Volunteer Law Enforcement Officer Association and Point of Aim, LLC 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
