The SPIAA Annual Training Conference is open to all law enforcement.  We cover topics of interest concerning policing in today's world and policing in spite of today's environment.  Our Training Conference attracts leaders in all areas of policing as well as scientists, psychologists, police trainers, criminal justice educators, as well as federal, state and local individuals in criminal justice fields.

Best of all, our training is affordable to police departments.

During the conference period, families of registrants are able to participate in tours and events set up by the organization and by the Auxiliary.  Early morning or in the evening, he SPIAA conducts board business, meets with members, and elects its new officers.

The Southern Police Institute

The Southern Police Institute is a division of the Department of Criminal Justice, College of Arts and Sciences, University of Louisville. It is an advanced education and training institute whose mission is to enhance the professional development of law enforcement practitioners. We accomplish this mission by providing educational and career development programs that are designed to challenge and to prepare law enforcement practitioners for the demands of today and tomorrow. The Southern Police Institute consistently is ranked among the top law enforcement educational and training schools in the nation.

Since the creation of the Southern Police Institute in 1951, its program of instruction has been grounded in the belief that law enforcement is a demanding activity requiring the highest level of professional preparation. The Southern Police Institute was established by its founders to provide a place where that preparation can be undertaken. The present faculty and staff dedicate themselves to this mission and continue to maintain the standards of excellence established by our founders. They are uniquely qualified as researchers, consultants, teachers and former law enforcement practitioners to guide and to direct the educational needs of today's law enforcement professionals.
