BOSTON - Sen. Richard T. Moore, D-Uxbridge, announced that the Human Resources Division has scheduled a Municipal Service Police Officer, State Trooper and MBTA Transit Police Officer examination that will be held on Saturday, April 20, 2013.

"Law enforcement can be a very rewarding profession," stated Sen. Moore. "The civil service exam is a critical component to joining the police force in cities and towns that subscribe to the civil service, or the MBTA Transit Police, and can even be used for other similar opportunities. I encourage anyone who is interested in becoming an officer to apply, study, and sit for the exam."

The police officer examination will be held to establish an eligible list from which to fill Police Officer vacancies in civil service cities and towns, and MBTA Transit Police. This eligible list may also be used to fill Police Officer vacancies in non-civil service jurisdictions. This examination is also being held to establish an eligible list from which to fill non-civil service Trooper vacancies in the Massachusetts Department of State Police. Applicants will have the option to have their exam results apply to both Police Officer and Trooper eligible lists, or the Police Officer eligible list only.

Moore urged candidates to thoroughly review the Examination Announcement, which provides a detailed description of the application procedure and specific minimum entrance requirements for each title. The posting also includes information specific to the positions of Police Officer and Trooper.

All applications to take the exam must be submitted online. Applicants can apply at: More information about the civil service exam, including the Examination Announcement and study materials are also available on Civil Service website.
