President's Message

Chief Chase 2018

Welcome to the web site of the New Hampshire Association of Chiefs of Police. It is an honor and privilege to serve as the 75th President of this esteemed organization. The association is committed to promoting professionalism in law enforcement and public safety and is the voice of law enforcement leadership in New Hampshire.

This is your association and your participation and ideas are needed.  If you are a new chief I welcome a fresh perspective.  If you are a seasoned chief, I welcome your wisdom.  The association has monthly meetings that fall on the second Tuesday of the month with the exception of March and December.   There are general membership meetings and executive committee meetings.  All chiefs are invited to all meetings.  At the general meetings we have guest or a presentation.  At the executive meetings we focus more on the committee reports.  These meetings are a great way to network and learn what is going on throughout the state.  I cannot put a value on the networking and relationship building that occurs.    

A top priority of mine for the upcoming year is officer resiliency.  We have lost too many of our own.  I am proud to announce that we have scheduled two law enforcement trainings and a training for the families of officers in April of 2019.  We must look out for each other and recognize if one of our brothers or sisters needs help and to create a culture that allows officers to ask for help.  

Hopefully you will find the website useful and informative. I look forward to using it as a medium to keep the membership current on issues, laws, events, committees and associations we work with. Please feel free to contact Executive Director Sullivan or myself if we can be of assistance.
