  • Master Patrol Officer Programs

    I am on a committe at my department to start a MPO program. We are looking for any ideas. If any of you out there have a similar program at your agency we would like to get your SOP, policy, or any other info.

    Thanks,

    I'm sorry to post in the Squad Room, I know I am a rookie and I know what the policy is. But I have to ask - what is a Master Patrolman program? A program that helps elaborate on basic policing skills, or something different altogether?

    Again, I apologize for posting in the squad room, re: policy. This program sparked my curiosity though.

      One local agency has a Master Officer rank. I think it requires 10 years and having been in three assignments.

      I wish my agency had some similar rank. Hey, anything to bump up the pay a bit.

        Try contacting the Fairfax County, VA County Police Dept. I know they have a program......

        Perhaps someone on here works for them and can point you in the right direction.....as I don't work with them on a daily basis and haven't a clue whom to contact....

        Good luck...
