The Saint Paul Police Department Professional Development Institute (PDI) in cooperation with Aerko International will host Aerko Aerosol Chemical Weapons Instructor Training.

Generically referred to as Pepper Sprays, Aerosol Subject Control Sprays have been in general Law Enforcement and Corrections use for thirty years. As focus on other intermediate force tools have taken up limited training time, aerosol weapons training has been limited, resulting in poor performance and reduced usage of this valuable tool.
