"MEMBERSHIP Does Have Its Privileges..."




"The individuals who graduate from the Southern Police Institute are poised for the highest levels of responsibility in U.S. law enforcement."  Conference Presenter 2012


The Southern Police Institute (SPI) is a division of the Department of Justice Administration, College of Arts and Sciences, University of Louisville. It is an advanced education and training institute with a mission to enhance professional development in the law enforcement fields. This is accomplished by providing education and career development programs which challenge and prepare individuals to meet demands both today and tomorrow. The SPI is consistently ranked among the top law enforcement education and training institutes. Since the creation of the SPI in 1951, its program of instruction has been grounded in the belief that law enforcement careers demand the highest level of professional preparation. The SPI was established to provide that preparation. The faculty and staff are uniquely qualified as researchers, consultants, teachers and law enforcement practitioners to guide and direct the educational needs of today's law enforcement professionals.

Graduates of the SPI are recognized as knowledgeable professionals in law enforcement fields and are found in leadership positions throughout law enforcement in the United States. Membership in the prestigious Southern Police Institute Alumni Association (SPIAA) shows continuing interest in professional career, as well as a continuing dedication to professional, self-development. We offer SPIAA members opportunities in training and re-training, access to law enforcement data, materials, and information relevant to their law enforcement environment. Additionally, SPIAA members have access to the Members Only area of the website which includes access to the membership directory among other services. One of our most popular training opportunities for law enforcement is the annual training conference. Focusing on leadership in today's global policing arena, law enforcement officials join us for a week of advanced quality training, peer networking, outreach and social programs.

As one of the most significant assets of the Southern Police Institute, the SPIAA, first created by the graduates in 1951, has grown into one of the most active alumni groups at the University of Louisville.
