Welcome

 

Welcome to the Southern Police Institute 63rd Annual Training Conference


Mark Your Calendar for July 21-24, 2014, in Tampa, Florida. We will be staying at the Embassy Suites-Downtown Convention Center, 513 South Florida Avenue, Tampa, Florida. The reduced room rates for SPIAA Conference Attendees is $119.00. If you park at the Embassy Suites, the parking rate is $12 per day.

The focus for 2014 is a topic right-on-point in today's environment - Enhancing Legitimacy: Procedural Justice and Crime Control in the 21st Century. It is become more and more difficult for law enforcement personnel to enforce the laws in their jurisdiction. State and federal governments have passed many statutes to address criminal activities that take place including the newer laws on cyber bullying, cyber stalking, theft of wireless services, spamming, unauthorized access - most of these laws didn't exist even a few years ago. So now we have plenty of laws on the books, but enforcing them in the 21st Century is another matter. This year's SPIAA training will focus on these issues and more. You will leave training with up-do-date information on various tactics and pitfalls for crime control and enforcement.

The general schedule is:
     Check in Monday 7/21
     Classes Tuesday-Thursday (7/22-24)
     Banquet Thursday evening (7/24)
     Check out Friday 7/25
