General Information

The Education Committee of the Ohio Association of Chiefs of Police (OACP) develops workshops based on attendance at past workshops and the requests of police chiefs throughout the state. Although designed to primarily address the needs of the law enforcement community, many workshops are equally valuable to others in local government. OACP members are encouraged to share this publication with their local officials and to invite them to attend. Thank You.
