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 and staff 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 2019 Citizen's Police Academy is now closed.  Please follow us on Facebook (@UNHPolice) and on Twitter (@UNH_Police) to be informed about the next CPA! 

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.  Each class session will run about 2 hours.  When UNH has declared curtailed operations the CPA will not be held. 

For any questions regarding the Citizen's Police Academy, please contact Officer Garrett Anthony, or call UNH Police at (603) 862-1427.
