The issue of education as it relates to the police is a long-standing one. Aspiring law enforcement officers used to enter the Police Academy right out of high school in order to gain the training needed to obtain a job at the local or state level. However, in the past decade, law enforcement and police work has become increasingly complex, requiring more college education and training.
In the past few years, a greater focus has been placed on national security. This means that increased funding has flowed into the law enforcement industry, creating new jobs, making advanced research possible, and paving the way for more effective ways to fight crime and increase security.
There is more to a law enforcement degree than simply becoming a police officer. Students with a degree are likely to advance more quickly than their co-workers who do not have a degree.
Make a difference in your career - and your life - by increasing your educaction and advance your career. It's more than a learning experience; it's exposure to new ideas and skills that can be readily applied.
This area is dedicated solely to education and career advancement training. Periodically colleges and universities will contact the NHPA and ask if we can post educational courses or training opportunities that will help NH Law Enforcement to do their jobs better.
