FULL-TIME PROJECT MANAGER FOR POLICE TRAINING ACADEMY: (Corporate and Community Education) Haverhill Campus. (Non-Unit Professional Position) Anticipated start date: December 1, 2014.

The College was approached recently and asked to help address a public safety challenge. Due to enrollment backlogs at the state’s police training academies, several police departments in our region have been unable to fill existing position on their forces. The departments strongly urged Northern Essex Community College to develop a local police training academy that would help alleviate the backlog, as well as provide a location closer to the potential sending police departments.

The College has accepted the challenge and seeks a Project Manager to oversee the development and implementation of the proposed Police Training Academy. The position will report to the Executive Director of Corporate and Community Education.

  • Manage the administrative support functions related to all academy operations, including correspondence, meetings, instructor contracts and invoices.
  • Ensure that the Academy adheres to the policies and procedures of the College and host entities (e.g. driving course, firing range).
  • Maintain all required information on instructors, trainees, attendance, learning outcomes, and activities.
  • Develop and submit reports as agreed upon by the Executive Director of Corporate and Community Education.
  • Maintain ongoing contact with the police departments in the area to respond to any developing training needs and with the Municipal Police Training Committee to ensure compliance with all MPTC recommendations and mandates.
  • Attend area police and advisory group meetings to determine regional training needs and to maintain a good working relationship with local communities and police departments.
  • Oversee the maintenance and upkeep of the academy training facility, in coordination with the College’s maintenance and facility department.
