Welcome to the nonprofit organization, the Southern Police Institute Alumni Association (SPIAA) - the association for graduates of the Southern Police Institute. We offer SPIAA members opportunities in training and re-training, access to law enforcement data, materials, and information relevant to today's law enforcement environment. One of our most critical training opportunities for law enforcement is our annual training conference. Focusing on leadership in today's global policing environment, law enforcement officials from everywhere, both members and non-members,  join us for a week of advanced quality training, peer networking, and our outreach and social programs.  One of the most significant assets of the Southern Police Institute is the Southern Police Institute Alumni Association. Created during 1951 by graduates, the association has grown into one of the most active alumni groups at the University of Louisville.

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 whose mission is to enhance the professional development of law enforcement practitioners. This mission is accomplished 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 faculty and staff dedicate themselves to this mission and continue to maintain the standards of excellence established by the 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.

Graduates of the SPI are looked upon as knowledgeable professionals in law enforcement fields. Membership in the prestigious SPIAA shows continuing interest in your professional career and your dedication to professional self-development.
