The cadet academy is designed to help 14- to 20-year-olds succeed in any career they choose. The program is run by the N.H. Association of Chiefs of Police. Financial aid is available.
“Leadership Academy is really the best year, not only does it teach you about how to be a leader in law enforcement and how to be in a supervisory position, but it teaches you how to be a leader in normal day life. It gives you the skills to succeed,” said Brace.
“The fact I’m in the field was able to prepare Tyler to some degree. Departments that have explorer posts attached to them help those individuals have more exposure to law enforcement,” added the chief.
