New Hampshire Campus Safety Academy

                                                                    New Hampshire Campus Safety Academy Class 30

Founded in 1986, the New  Hampshire Campus Safety Academy is the first
program in the country specializing in preparing non-sworn campus public safety
and security officers for the challenges presented on college and secondary school
campuses.  The curriculum is designed to provide officers with the theoretical and
practical skills required to manage the many aspects of their positions. Course
offerings, materials and instructional staff are evaluated annually to ensure officers
have the best learning experience possible.

The Academy is a non-profit program and is run under the auspices and direction of
the New Hampshire Association of Campus Law Enforcement Administrators
(NHACLEA).  It promotes the ideals of service, integrity and continuous professional
development to best serve our campuses.

Students are required to live on-campus during the program and all housing and
meals costs are included in tuition. The 6-day program is intensive. The residential
model provides the best environment and opportunities for learning both in and out
of the classroom. Academy staff also reside on campus to provide study
assistance, mentoring and other assistance as needed. Enrollment is open to all
proprietary safety and security personnel from secondary and post-secondary
academic institutions in and outside of New Hampshire.

NHACLEA was awarded the Northeast Colleges and Universities Security
Association (NECUSA) Professional Achievement Award in 2000 for the academy
curriculum and program.
