UNH Deputy Police Chief Paul Dean has been honored by the New Hampshire Police Standards and Training Council for his years of service as an adjunct instructor.

Dean has been teaching full-time and reserve officers for the police academy since 1988. Anyone who goes into law enforcement in the Granite State, including conservation officers and liquor investigators, is trained through the Police Standards and Training Council.

“Deputy Paul Dean's unwavering support of the New Hampshire Police Standards and Training Council continues to make a visible and long-lasting impact on the intangible areas of pride, morale and positive attitude of hundreds of police recruits,” says UNH Chief Nicholas Halias. “His personal interest in supporting and developing professional police skills has earned him the admiration and respect of others as evidenced with this special commendation.”

The award recognizes the deputy chief for his commitment to law enforcement training, noting that his “expertise, enthusiasm, and high moral standards have made a lasting impact on New Hampshire police officers."

Dean has taught classes in antiterrorism, criminal law, ethics, civil liability, patrol procedures, arrest law, traffic control and direction, officer survival and motor vehicle stop tactics.

From 1988 through 2001, he served as staff coordinator for the part-time police officer academy. Additionally, Dean has served on curriculum review committees for police officer training.

Created in 1971, the New Hampshire Police Standards and Training Council currently certifies approximately 4,500 police officers in the state and trains or certifies approximately 1,200 sworn and civilian employees who work for the N.H. Department of Corrections.
