Use of Force Instructor Certification

The Use of Force Instructor Certification by SPPD-PDI will change significantly this year based on the feedback of participants in 2012.  The certification process will involve a series of courses to be taken over an extended period of time in 2013.  The intention of this is to "dramatically" improve the skill level of the participants while alleviating an agency's burden of losing an officer for more than 2 weeks at one time.

Here is what the Program will look like.
