Sergeant Ed Lemon,
On behalf of St. Paul PDI-
I and other officers, of the Brooklyn Park Police Department, that have participated in St. Paul Professional Development Institute (SPPPDI) trainings would like to extend our appreciation to you and your organization. SPPPDI has become our go to organization for state of the art training in law enforcement.
This is especially true in regards to combat tactics. Brooklyn Park Officers have participated in many of the L.O.C.K.U.P. trainings you have hosted, to include the instructor course and the L.E.A.D.S. (Law Enforcement Active Diffusion Strategies). SPPDI continually demonstrates professionalism beyond all others.
L.O.C.K.U.P. has become our department’s primary combat tactics program. Most of our officers are able to perform the techniques with ease and have an increased confidence during combat situations. As an instructor myself, I feel an extreme amount of support from SPPPDI and other L.O.C.K.U.P. instructors from the metro area.
Thank you for your dedication to fellow officers, and for providing amazing opportunities to educate and better ourselves.
