One of the primary tasks of the Middlesex County Chiefs of Police Association is to bring together municipal chiefs of police in our 54 cities and towns to form a cohesive group and a singular voice in discussions of law, policy, and other important issues.
There are many important issues that come up for discussion on Beacon Hill and on Capital Hill, and these issues can have profound effects on law enforcement.
These issues include the lack of funding statewide for municipal police training. Did you know: Massachusetts ranks among the bottom three states in the country for funding police training?
We also keep up on major court cases. Our work on the historic Inter Agency Mutual Aid Agreement stemmed from two Supreme Judicial Court Decisions: Commonwealth v. LeBlanc (1990) and Commonwealth v. Bartlett (2013).
