Written and practical exams are administered periodically.

Firearms and Defensive Weapons Training - Twice-annualĀ firearms training and requalification with the departmentally-approved .40-caliber Glock Model 23 semiautomatic pistol, to the same standards as full-time officers. Also refresher training in Pepper Spray and Monadnock expandable baton.
