    They are police officers and attend the same academy as the rest of NH. They fall under the state police and patrol the state hospital facilities. They are similar to DMH police, in that they provide police services to a hospital, which serves patients with mental illness and substance abuse problems.

    It's a police job and a foot in the door. If you're looking to relocate to NH, this could be a way to get certified and move on (or stay if you want.) NH doesn't have self sponsors, you have to be sent by a PD. The only other campus PD's that I am aware of for NH are UNH PD, Plymouth State and Keene State. I know UNH is armed not sure of the other two.

    I remember about 10 years back, the UMass Medical hospital in Worcester had armed supervisors but unarmed cops. The way they're standing in the picture makes me think this is the case there too. I'd love to be wrong on the subject of brothers & sisters having thr tools they need to do the job. And like others said, it gets you a FT academy for NH.

    From the Keene State College Campus Safety website's "Frequently Asked Questions" section. They aren't police and definitely not armed. Only UNH and Plymouth State have PD's. No slight to Keene State.

    ? What kind of enforcement authority does Campus Safety have?

    Campus Safety Officers have the full authority to enforce all KSC policies and regulations as outlined in the student handbook and other publications, granted by Keene State College They have the authority request identification and will immediately involve the Keene Police Department if criminal activity is observed or reported.

    While the Keene State officers do not have arrest powers, they have a cooperative relationship with the Keene Police Department and work together on a daily basis to provide services to the Keene State Community. Keene State also has a College Liaison Officer who is a full-time Keene Police Officer assigned specifically to work with the College. Keene State students are held accountable through the Student Conduct system for activity both on and off campus.

    It is possible that all the cops on the right side of the picture are righties and their guns are on their other hip. Let's not forget that! :):)

    I am interested to know which two Boston hospitals have 24/7 BPD details? BMC wouldn’t as they have BUPD as their armed backup, MGH is standalone, so I’d assume probably Tufts and/BWH. BWH is on a massive hiring spree as they just dumped Securitas for an in-house security department. BIDMC is the obvious armed department with a line drawn between security and police.

    Hospitals in CA are armed, hospitals in TX are armed, just off the too of my head. There are many hospital PD's across the country that are armed.
