Citizens Police Academy

The UNH Citizens Police Academy (CPA) is an informational program designed to bring our community members information and demonstrations from campus, county, state and federal law enforcement professionals. Historically, the CPA has attracted students, staff and community members who are interested in a better understanding of the University Police and police work in general. Many of our graduates have gone on to become law enforcement professionals.

UNH Citizen’s Police Academy instructors, who represent a wide variety of law enforcement agencies, bring their education and experience to the program. Past presentations have included a bomb technician, police K-9, homeland security, a visit to the county jail and a certified polygraph examiner.   

Enrollment for the Spring 2020 Citizen's Police Academy is now open!

This is a 10 week academy held at the UNH Police Department, 18 Waterworks Rd, Durham, NH.  There will be at least 1 field trip, but transportation will be provided.  Classes for the Spring 2020 CPA begin February 18 and will be held each Tuesday from 7pm-9pm (except for the week of UNH Spring Break).  When UNH has declared curtailed operations the CPA will not be held.
