The FBI National Academy is a professional course of study for U.S. and international law enforcement managers nominated by their agency heads because of demonstrated leadership qualities. The 10-week program—which provides coursework in intelligence theory, terrorism and terrorist mindsets, management science, law, behavioral science, law enforcement communication, and forensic science—serves to improve the administration of justice in police departments and agencies at home and abroad and to raise law enforcement standards, knowledge, and cooperation worldwide. 


Senior Management Institute for Police

SMIP is a program of the Police Executive Research Forum that provides senior police executives with intensive training in the latest management concepts and practices used in business and government. It also features discussions of the most challenging issues facing law enforcement executives today.

A demanding three-week course, SMIP brings together a faculty from top universities, successful law enforcement chief executives, and subject matter experts from the private sector. It is designed for mid- to upper-level police executives who ultimately will lead police agencies throughout the United States and other participating countries. SMIP’s curriculum addresses the issues that demand the attention of today’s forward-thinking law enforcement leaders. Classes are held at Boston University, where participants learn and reside in the university’s leading classrooms and residence hall.


South Police Institute Command Officers Development Course (CODC)

The CODC is SPI's 400-hour flagship educational program for law enforcement mid to upper-level managers, which provides a solid foundation for practical law enforcement administration and a comprehensive overview of management practices. This training is offered in five (5) two-week sessions over a period of five months. The challenging course complements SPI's AOC, and is traditionally held off campus at host agency sites.
The CODC has continuously evolved with changing social, economic, and political environments associated with local, state and federal units of government.
