Police Law Institute moves into new facility at UI Oakdale Research Park
CORALVILLE, Iowa -- Dec. 31 was "graduation day" for the Police
Law Institute, Inc. (PLI), a tenant in the University of Iowa Technology Innovation
Center (TIC) business incubator since 1990.
While most Iowans were preparing to celebrate the New Year, the employees
of PLI completed their move to the Myriad Technology Plaza on the UI Oakdale
Research Park. PLI offices are now located in Suite 100, 2658 Crosspark Road
on the UI Oakdale Research Park.
The Police Law Institute prepares and delivers software that provides police
officers computer-based instruction and monthly updates in criminal law. Most
of the Institute's clients are law enforcement agencies in Florida and Illinois.
Robert W. Wennerholm, a police legal advisor and educator, serves as executive
director of the Institute, which also employs legal analysts and computer
experts to produce its monthly legal updates.
Wennerholm founded the Institute in Florida in 1983 and moved the business
to Iowa in 1990.
The UI Oakdale Research Park was established in 1989 to encourage sustained
research relationships between the UI and industry. The Park offers leased
building sites and space to corporations engaged in research and development
and related production and marketing activities.
Police Law Institute is the 13th company to successfully "graduate"
from the TIC business incubator and the eighth company to expand on the research
Firms already on the park include Oakdale Systems, LMS CADSI, Neural Applications
Corp., UroSurge, Inc., The Stanley Group, Ascend Technologies, Inc., and Systems
University "anchor" laboratories on the park are Oakdale Medical
Research, the Center for Biocatalysis and Bioprocessing, and the National
Advanced Driving Simulator (NADS). A fourth magnet laboratory, the Center
for Advanced Drug Development, is also at Oakdale.
