On behalf of the dedicated men and women of the New Hampshire Association of Chiefs of Police, I welcome you to our website. It is both an honor and privilege to serve as the 76th President of this great Association.

One of the consistent things we deal with is change and I believe that creates an exciting time for our Association. As law enforcement leaders and as an Association, we will face change that allows us to grow and explore.

We are committed to continuous improvement and understand that for improvement to take place, honest feedback and strong community partnerships – along with dedication from our Board of Officers, Executive Director, and members - must all converge to ensure success.  I truly welcome your comments as we seek new and innovative ways to improve the effectiveness and efficiencies of our Association. 

Over the course of this next year, we will look at improving and enhancing our website. By doing so, we hope to better serve you by providing additional information on our activities, training, career opportunities, legislative issues and resources.

In addition, I am looking forward to this year as we continue to build new partnerships with Primex and the NH Fire Chiefs Association to bring additional training to our public safety organizations and renew and strengthen our partnership with Special Olympics.

Please join me as we continue to move the NHACOP forward and strive for excellence. This can only be achieved if we come together to achieve our goals.
