A judge has scheduled a hearing for next month to determine whether a state board must have access to meetings and documents related to New Hampshire police officer certification. The Union Leader Corp. filed a lawsuit in Merrimack County Superior Court after the New Hampshire Police Standards and Training Council closed a discipline-related certification hearing in October. The hearings were over the qualification of Justin Swift, a Loudon police officer who was dismissed from his former job at the Ossipee Police Department. Law enforcement certification hearings are closed, despite the fact that hundreds of state boards have open hearings for licensing and certification of occupations ranging from nursing to home inspection. According to a lawsuit filed by attorney Gregory Sullivan, who represents the Union Leader, “the NHPSTC normally keeps the police de-certification process secret.” “Not only does this breach (the Right-to-Know Law), but it also casts doubt on (law enforcement) and diminishes the overwhelming majority of officers’ diligent work and dedication.”
What are police officer fitness requirements?
The New Hampshire Police Standards and Training Council was created by the New Hampshire General Court in 1971 and consists of fourteen members. The council is in charge of setting minimum hiring and training requirements for police and state corrections officers, as well as the certification process. Both police and state corrections officers in the state are required to receive basic and in-service training from the council.  The Council’s headquarters are at 17 Institute Drive in Concord, and John Scippa is the current director.  The Director is in charge of all administrative tasks. Two town police officers, two city police chiefs, two county sheriffs, two judges in criminal courts, the Chancellor of the Community College System of New Hampshire or his designee, and two elected members make up the council.

Law enforcement officials, minority groups, and members of the public are scrutinizing how New Hampshire police officers are educated, how it compares to other jurisdictions, and what can be done to increase training time and required curriculum on race relations, proper use of force, and de-escalation strategies.
The director of the New Hampshire Police Standards and Training Academy, John Scippa, gave a presentation to the newly established Commission on Law Enforcement Accountability, Community, and Transparency on Thursday about how police in the state are currently educated, as well as some places he wants to see changed.
Following the May 25 killing of George Floyd, an unarmed black man, by Minneapolis, Minn., police officers, Gov. Chris Sununu established the commission on June 16 in response to demands for police reform and national demonstrations against racial racism and police violence.
The commission’s mandate is to examine law enforcement preparation and curriculum, as well as state and local policies and procedures relating to police brutality and transparency, as well as how police forces interact with the minority populations they represent, and to recommend changes.

Currently, I am the Commandant of the Corrections Officer Academy. And, as of July 2017, I was appointed as the Coordinator for Driver Training for all NH academies and in-service training courses. I had been working on a per diem basis for over 30 years before joining the Staff on a weekly basis. Administrative responsibilities include conducting background checks, overseeing and reviewing the equipment stock room inventory, and training newly recruited officers on a variety of topics from around the state. This includes instructional and administrative duties for all three Academies – full-time officer, part-time officer, and corrections officer – performed at the training center. In-service training for officers who have already received their certification is also given, and I help teach in those courses as well. Coordination and execution of video conference training at the Keene video conference site for any academy or in-service training performed there were also part of my responsibilities.
