A state audit has found that the agency responsible for training and certifying New Hampshire police officers has struggled at times to conduct its oversight duties consistently.
The Police Standards and Training Council oversees the state’s law enforcement academy and is charged with reviewing misconduct cases to determine whether they warrant the suspension or revocation of a person’s police or correctional officer certification.
The auditors found that the agency took no action against local police departments that failed to report when an officer was fired or arrested. In one case, an agency that had nine officers arrested during the two-year audit period only reported five of the cases to the PSTC. The audit did not name the agency involved.
