Got an interesting question; does anyone know what type of training the campus PO's in NH receive? I know the UNH guys are sent to the full time academy for full time position, just wondering if for the big schools up there the standard is the same as UNH.

From my understanding the two campus departments in the state of New Hampshire that have officers who are armed with police powers and attendance at the full time academy are University of New Hampshire and Plymouth State University (formely Plymouth State College). The other departments in the state are classified as Public Safety Officers PSOs. As a PSO they have no arrest powers or carry any weapons.
There is a 40 hour public safety officer academy run by NH Police Standards and Training Council in Concord, NH.

how about the other schools, since they don't carry firearms, do they get to carry OC and batons? Kinda stinks if they walk aorund a campus with nothing on them for defense.

New Hampshire Regional Community-Technical Institute Section 188-F:34 Authority. - All security officers of the campus security force shall have the power to detain any person who they have reasonable grounds to believe has committed any offense under the laws of the state, on the premises of the New Hampshire regional community-technical institute as long as necessary to surrender the person to a peace officer, provided such detention is accomplished in a reasonable manner.

Look into getting a job with UNH-PD if you can. I know a couple of guys who left my department to go work there. They arent the normal campus police department who's afraid to do anything to the golden boy who pays 40 grand a year to go to school there and they dont answer to Dean of whatever. They dont take any crap (they write state moving violations) and PLENTY of eye candy to look at too!! My advice is to just not sell campus policing short, UNH can be busier than some of the cities and towns in NH.

UNH Police go thru the same fulltime police academy as the rest of the state, have full law enforcement powers, including motor vehicle, and can get very busy. Great relationship with area departments too. UNH Police is a kick ass department, and you are definately right about the eye-candy.
