The primary mission of the University of New Hampshire Police Department is the protection of life and property. This is accomplished through fair, consistent and equal enforcement, always keeping in mind the rights and dignity of the public.
RESPECT: Treat all persons in a dignified and courteous manner and exhibit understanding of ethnic and culture diversity, both in our professional and personal endeavors.
FAIRNESS: Treat all persons impartially, with consideration, compassion and understanding. Be equally responsive to our employees and the community we serve.
INTEGRITY: We are committed to the highest performance standards, ethical conduct, honesty and trustfulness in all relationships. We hold ourselves accountable for our actions and take pride in a professional level of service to all.
The University of New Hampshire Police Department is a full service nationally accredited law enforcement agency. The members of the university community are entitled to a professional department. It is for this reason that we have voluntarily sought accreditation through the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies, Inc. (CALEA) and the International Association of Campus Law Enforcement Administrators (IACLEA). Accreditation is an intensive effort covering 444 standards and involves the entire agency.
