Professional Development Institute
SPPD'S Professional Development Institute provides quality, affordable courses that have been rated excellent by active police and correction officers!
We apologize for the delay in releasing our 2017 PDI Course calendar. Please scroll down to view our 2017 courses. Many of our courses will be finalized with registration links added by December 16, 2017. Thank you for your patience and continued support of the SPPD PDI.
The St. Paul Police Department is in the process of developing a new training facility. As such, the 2017 PDI calendar will offer fewer courses until construction is complete.
