Granite State College: University System of New Hampshire

Gregg Public Safety Academy

The Gregg Public Safety Academy, located in Littleton, is one of the most technologically advanced classrooms in New Hampshire.  Our primary role is to assist New Hampshire Police Standards and Training Council (PSTC) with their distance learning needs.  This includes interactive video, course management system software and a physical location in Littleton.

We are connected to the Granite State Distance Learning Network, which provides a dedicated video and data network. PSTC maintains sites in Portsmouth, Keene and their primary training facility in Concord. We routinely connect to other USNH and GSDLN sites for events.


About Us
The Gregg Public Safety Academy is pioneering ways to remove the economic barriers of time and distance for adult learners across the state, while maintaining a user-friendly atmosphere to trainers and faculty.

Our mission is to help state agencies bring training and video conferencing to all parts of New Hampshire. The Littleton facility provides one such physical space. As part of the Granite State Distance Learning Network, we have access to, and collaborate with, over 30 video conferencing sites in the state and connect with sites in other states.  We also provide technical assistance to trainers who offer courses on an internal network and the internet.

The Academy serves as both a physical location and a state wide operations resource. It is a virtual training center for many state and non-profit agencies that provide training to North Country citizens. The Coordinator of the Academy is a member of the Executive Committee of The Academy also serves the entire state as a video event coordinator for many State agencies. Currently, it assists in providing over 700 hours a year of interactive video events, and has provided technical and procedural training to more than 38 agencies.

Our Partners
The Academy provides best practices training, using interactive video, between multiple sites across the state. The Academy actively assists state partners with implementation of technology, presentation of methodologies, and attracting an audience. Granite State College and Police Standards and Training Council are reaching out to share resources and expertise with state agencies and regional and local government organizations.

Programs & Events
We encourage prospective students to find out about Granite State College degrees that can be built upon existing professional training, experience, and academic credit. New Hampshire Police Standards and Training Council’s Full Time Academy graduates can use this prior learning experience to satisfy some course requirements at Granite State College. Other five day or longer courses may also be used for credit at Granite State College.

Granite State College also offers advanced training for teachers and trainers of adults in several certificate programs.

Remember, our programs are designed for adults who are often working full time. Flexible scheduling and credit for prior learning can save you a considerable amount of time and money as you pursue your degree.
