372.5 Hour Basic Reserve

As many of you know the Municipal Police Training Committee and representatives from the regional police academies have been working diligently for months now revamping the Basic Reserve Intermittent Training Program. The old standard of 345 hours has been scrapped and the new program has been increased to 372.5 hours with an additional 56 hours of firearms instruction. Additionally, uniforms are now mandatory and you will find the program more structured, more professional, and far more comprehensive. Our goal is to provide the reserve officer with all the tools necessary to effectively and safely perform the police function within his or her community.
On Monday, 9/28/20, SSPI will make a decision whether to go forward with Orientation on 10/7.  In spite of unusually strong interest in our next Basic Reserve Intermittent Training course, it has not translated into sufficient application to allow us to run the class.  At the end of business on Monday, 9/28 we will post on this site our decision.
If you have interest in this class, please forward an application to us as soon as possible.  However; please do not apply unless you are serious and committed to attending.  Completed applications can be emailed to Program Coordinator, Erin Farrell at basic@sspi.net, faxed to 508-543-0633, or mailed to SSPI, Inc. PO Box 205, Millis, MA 02054. 
 

**Orientation for the fall course will be held on Wednesday, October 7, 2020.  The first night of classes will be Wednesday, October 14, 2020.  Due to the COVID 19 pandemic, these dates are subject to change.  Please check back frequently for any updates.**
