Southern Police Institute


Barbara K. Campbell
November 5, 1940
-October 23, 2016

A post from Carol Patrick with the SPI Alumni Association:
"Dr. Walsh advised that Barbara Campbell lost her battle with cancer and passed away at 3 AM this morning (10-23-16). She was surrounded by Professor B. Edward Campbell and her family. Mrs. Campbell was a wonderful person and a strong supporter of the Southern Police Institute, the SPI Alumni Association and the SPI Alumni Auxiliary. She attended the conference in July 2016 in San Destin, FL, with Professor Campbell and attended the Auxiliary luncheon, where she related so much of the history of the Association, sharing it with the newer members. She has been such a presence for SPI and our extended family for so many years that I cannot imagine a future without her. She will be missed..."

RE: In Memory of Barbara Campbell

The Southern Police Institute is a division of the Department of Criminal Justice, College of Arts and Sciences, University of Louisville. It is an advanced education and training institute whose mission is to enhance the professional development of law enforcement practitioners. We accomplish this mission by providing educational and career development programs that are designed to challenge and to prepare law enforcement practitioners for the demands of today and tomorrow. The Southern Police Institute consistently is ranked among the top law enforcement educational and training schools in the nation.

Since the creation of the Southern Police Institute in 1951, its program of instruction has been grounded in the belief that law enforcement is a demanding activity requiring the highest level of professional preparation. The Southern Police Institute was established by its founders to provide a place where that preparation can be undertaken. The present faculty and staff dedicate themselves to this mission and continue to maintain the standards of excellence established by our founders. They are uniquely qualified as researchers, consultants, teachers and former law enforcement practitioners to guide and to direct the educational needs of today's law enforcement professionals.
