Congratulations to all the participants who graduated from Southern Police Institute (SPI) 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. This particular class was hosted by the Clermont Police Department and held at the Clermont Arts and Recreation Center over the class five-month period. The CODC has continuously evolved with changing social, economic, and political environments associated with local, state and federal units of government. Students fully participate in the course which is interactively facilitated by a large cadre of instructional staff. Students prepare and present staff studies and receive feedback from instructors and peers. Congrats to all the graduates, especially our very own Captain John Graczyk, Lieutenant Brent Joyner, Sergeant Aaron Grassi, and Sergeant Shane Strickland. Special thank you to The Southern Police Institute group, the instructors, and all the participating agencies that made this class possible.
