    DID YOU KNOW?

    In 1951, the Southern Police Institute was founded at UofL. In the early 1960s, curriculum shifted to more instruction in police administration, personnel management, social and behavioral sciences and criminal and constitutional law and the SPI became the first school of its type in the U.S. to offer college credit for in-service police education.
