New Hampshire Campus Safety Academy

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.

The Academy is a six day residential program.  Students live in on-campus housing
provided by the host institution.. Academy staff are on campus throughout the week
to provide study assistance, mentoring and other assistance as needed.
Enrollment is open to all in-house safety and security personnel from academic
institutions both in and out of state.
