An Act relative to the retirment of MassPort police officers


MassPort police officers provide high level public safety services for the Commonwealth on essential properties that are controlled by the agency. These officers share jurisdiction with the Massachusetts State Police in essential public areas like Logan Airport and the Seaport. Despite their duties and qualifications matching any police department in the state, they have been incorrectly relegated to group 2 for the purposes of the retirement system.  This bill would bring them into group 4, which is reflective of their work.
