About This Event

Police Program academy patch

Fitchburg State presents the graduation ceremony for the 11 members of its 6th Recruit Officer Course (ROC), all of whom have already been hired by municipal or campus police departments.

The members of the 6th ROC graduated with their bachelor's degrees in criminal justice in May and spent the last 17 weeks in a police academy whose curriculum was developed in collaboration with the Municipal Police Training Committee (MPTC). During the ceremony, the officers will receive badges and will be fully certified to report for duty at municipal police departments in Massachusetts and neighboring states. They also have the option of pursuing master's degrees as part of the university's groundbreaking 4+1 program, believed to be the first of its kind in the nation.

FATV will livestream the ceremony.
