Congratulations to the graduates of the Southern Police Institute’s Homicide Investigation course on May 17, 2019 in North Pole, Alaska.

The course was the first time in recent memory that Southern Police Institute brought its flagship 80-hour investigative training course to Alaska. Special thanks to Course Coordinator, Lt. Jeromey Lindhag of the North Pole Police Department.
