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.

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

The New Hampshire Campus Safety Academy Announces Exciting
Changes to the Schedule & Curriculum!

After completing the 30th Academy in 2015, the Academy staff and the New Hampshire
Association of Campus Law Enforcement Administrators (NHACLEA), the sponsoring
organization, decided to make changes to the existing Academy model to make the
program more accessible and less expensive for our members and the many departments
that send officers to the program each year.

The reason for the changes:

  • Reduce costs to departments for tuition, and overtime costs associated with
    covering officers’ shifts for a week;
  • Reduce officers’ time away from family, home and work;
  • Student feedback
             -The 6 day live-in model is intensive and leaves little free time
             -On campus living for adults has limited appeal


We are moving from a 6 day live-in model to two (2) three day programs presented in two
modules: basic and advanced. Officers can choose to commute to class each day or stay in
a local hotel (contact information provided below).

Module 1 Basic is a 3 day, 27 hour program that covers those issues and topics most
critical for the officers working on our campuses. Topics include:
  • History, Role and Ethics
  • Legal Overview and Clery
  • Fire Safety and Emergency Management
  • Officer Safety and Patrol Procedures
  • Report Writing
  • Preliminary Investigation
  • Drug ID and Effects
  • Response to Alcohol Incidents (new)
  • Suicide Gatekeeper Training (new)
  • Managing Mental Health Incidents (new)
  • Sexual Violence and Title IX
  • Response to Bias-Related Incidents

Module 2 Advanced  (Advanced Academy dates to be determined) is a 3 day, 20 hour
program that covers some areas in more depth and introduces training on topics important
for officers to know including MOAB:
  • Behavior Identification and Management (new)
  • Report Writing II
  • Emergency Management II (new: includes tabletop exercises)
  • Crime Awareness Education for Your Community (new)
  • Management of Aggressive Behavior (MOAB) Certification

The upcoming Academy location and dates have not been scheduled. Please check back
