Citizens Police Academy

Citizens Police Academy logo

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.

This 10 week academy will begin March 2 and be held Wednesdays from 7pm to 8:30pm at the UNH Police Department, 18 Waterworks Rd, Durham.  Anticipated presentations will be from our own personnel along with the Strafford County Attorney.  Enrollment is limited to 10 participants.
