Welcome to the Saint Paul Police Department Professional Development Institute

Our goal is to produce the highest quality training possible for law enforcement professionals in the ever changing climate in which we work.  Some courses are 100% a product of the Saint Paul Police Department PDI. Others are produced from an array of vetted companies across the nation.  This allows PDI to provide training from different perspectives with the most up to date local and national information.

 

CANCELLATION POLICY 

Saint Paul PD Courses - All cancellations must be cleared with Sergeant Justin Miller.  Any "NO SHOW " will result in the student being charged for the course.

Non-Saint Paul Courses - For any course where payment and/or registration was done directly with a company/instructor, the student must deal directly with that company/instructor providing the course.
