THE STAFF- The Staff of the NH Police Cadet Training Academy is made up of a very select corps of volunteer police officers from many NH local, county and state agencies, the United States Army Military Police, a school nurse and an EMT/Dispatcher. Most of the staff is assigned by their agencies to the program for the week though some members take their own vacation time to be able to attend. More than half of the 2015 staff attended the Cadet Academy as youth. The current Commander, Lt. Pierre Pouliot of the Goffstown Police is the first former Cadet to become Commander of the Cadet Academy. 8 members have served on the staff for more than 10 years, 6 of them have over 15 years of service and 1 has been on the staff for 30 years. Staff members are invited to the staff based on recommendation by current staff members. Nearly all the staff members have been recognized by their agencies for service to the Cadet Academy. Many members have received high recognition by outside organizations and the Exploring program from when the Cadet Academy was an Explorer Post.
Those recognitions include:
New Hampshire Congressional Law Enforcement Award- Sgt. Linda Elrick, Chief Vinnie Baiocchetti, Chief Steven Marshall
NH Police, Fire & EMS Foundation Dedication to Service and Lifetime Achievement Awards- Chief Vinnie Baiochetti, Lt. Pierre Pouliot, Chief Steven Marshall
Military Outstanding Volunteer Service Medal- SSGT Derek Atwood
