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.
