PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT INSTITUTE
Committed to Developing Those Who Protect & Serve Others.
The LAPPL welcomes law enforcement professionals to a series of world-class training courses called the Professional Development Institute or PDI.
The mission of PDI is to enhance professionalism, boost competence, increase a greater understanding of our profession earlier in careers, inspire confidence, reduce grievances, reduce personnel complaints, reduce lawsuits, reduce stress, increase morale, increase wellness, develop an increased commitment to the profession, and assist in achieving state mandated CA POST CPT compliance.
Our Goal is to Help You be Better.
All Agencies Are Welcome.
Primarily, PDI’s target audience is sworn personnel from the rank of police officer through lieutenant, however non-sworn members of our profession and members of all ranks are welcome.
Although LAPPL members are made up of Los Angeles Police Officers; PDI welcomes and encourages law enforcement personnel from any agency to attend. Regional attendance and networking benefits all attendees. California agencies will receive CA POST CPT credit for completed courses.
Not only are all agencies across the United States welcome at our Downtown Los Angeles facility, but classes can also be taught at YOUR location too! For inquiries regarding this, please send us a contact form!
