Course Description:
Since 1955, the Southern Police Institute has provided law enforcement officers worldwide with quality homicide investigative training. SPI’s HOMICIDE INVESTIGATION course provides participants with the knowledge, skills, and abilities required to conduct competent and complete homicide/death investigations.

Carefully selected case studies are used throughout the program to explore every aspect of homicide/death investigations, including autoerotic fatalities, and suicides. An expert in a specific field of specialization leads each program segment. Court-certified, these experts provide the participant valuable exposure to years of field experience and a variety of investigative techniques. The course is an intensive eighty-hour program delivered over 10 days. Each participant is granted the opportunity to individually interact with the instructors and review cases, including their own cold cases and active investigations. Cases will be examined through discussion, questions, and answers as well as an evaluation of evidence by participants and instructors. The learning environment and assignments, including practical and scenario-based exercises, is highly interactive with frequent group discussions in order to draw on the experience and expertise of the participants themselves as well as from the experience the instructors bring to the classroom. At the completion of the program, participants have the ability to differentiate between accidental, suicidal, and homicidal death.
