With an upcoming civil service exam, Mayor Arthur Vigeant is calling for residents to take the test and enter law enforcement.
“The Marlborough Police Department has a strong roster of men and women dedicated to making our city a better community. I strongly encourage city residents interested in protecting and serving our city to consider this opportunity,” said Mayor Vigeant.
Anyone joining the department's ranks would be part of an organization that recently added members who grew up in the community. The fire department also recently added three new members who grew up in Marlborough.
The Commonwealth of Massachusetts’ Civil Service Exam for local Police Officers, Transit Police and State Troopers is only offered every other year. Candidates must take and pass this examination in order to be placed on the eligibility list for the City of Marlborough Police Department. Of the six new officers added to the department in 2012, five were new hires through the Civil Service Examination process.
