CRITICAL ISSUES IN AMERICAN POLICING

Welcome

The Southern Police Institute Alumni Association (SPIAA) is dedicated to enhancing the leadership skills of today’s law enforcement mangers. The purpose of this training is to focus on solutions for the most pressing issues facing police leaders (community engagement, recruitment and retention of staff, and the opioid crisis), by providing opportunities to learn from subject matter experts, while increasing individual leadership skills.

CRITICAL ISSUES IN AMERICAN POLICING

We will be at the Charlotte Motor Speedway Conference Center. Throughout the training period, we will meet and network with peers who face the same circumstances and make the same decisions we all do in the workplace. We will hear from the Honorable Terry D. Edwards, Associate Professor (SPI); the ever popular Dr. Thomas Hughes, Director (SPI); Darrell W. Stephens, Executive Director of Major City Chiefs Association; motivation speaker and extraordinary athlete Phill Ford; and others who will share innovative approaches that work in the policing environment today.

I invite you to join us and participate. The site will open for registration in January 2018.

See you in July!
