  • Public safety training that matters

    Today’s public safety professionals face some of the greatest challenges in history. Meeting these complexities begins with professional training.

    Since 1960, the Southeastern Public Safety Institute (SEPSI) at St. Petersburg College has offered specialized training and education for those preparing to enter a public safety profession, in-service professionals and administrators. Today, SEPSI includes our public safety training academies and in-service training for law enforcement.

    The Allstate Center in south St. Petersburg houses SEPSI programs and a variety of grant-funded training programs through the Center for Public Safety Innovation. The Allstate Center also is home to the College of Public Safety Administration, which offers academic degrees. At the Allstate Center you will find spacious conference rooms, teaching labs and classrooms designed for public safety instruction. Our unique and practical learning environments include:

    • Booking and criminalistics rooms
    • Interrogation labs
    • Media center
    • Exercise room
    • Padded defensive tactics room
    • Mock apartment

  • Student Lounge

    Take a break between classes in our student lounge. The lounge has two ping pong tables, two foosball tables, couches, chairs, a flat-screen television and vending machines.
