Newport Teens Attend Police Cadet Academy

newportNewport Police Chief Jim Burroughs made the long trek to Concord Tuesday to teach not only some kids from his hometown, but many others from around the state at the New Hampshire Police Cadet Training Academy (NHPCTA).
The NHPCTA is a week-long program, established in 1973, to teach youth, ages 14 to 20, how to become a police cadet. It’s a way to expose young people to what it would be like to become a police officer if they’d like to one day. The academy uses space on the New Hampshire Technical Institute campus to hold classes and house the students. The academy is funded by the New Hampshire Police Chiefs Association and tuition fees from students. Every year, the association asks chiefs from around the state to come and be classroom instructors. This year, Burroughs went to teach a course “Driving While Intoxicated.” This story from the Eagle Times
