The Ohio Small Police Department Association was created to provide a platform for departments that have 25 or less full-time sworn officers to come together for the purposes of:

  • Educating the public about the importance and needs of small police departments

  • Networking

  • Creating purchasing power

  • Holding events and trainings relevant to small department’s needs

  • Advocacy

  • Grant strength

           and many other benefits!




The Association is committed to developing strong collaborative partnerships between small departments, and relationships that enable its members to provide a high level of service and to better protect, serve and support the people of their communities.
By partnering with OSPDA, Virtual Academy is offering its array of professionally-produced, online training coursework at an affordable cost. We are committed to helping the OSPDA sustain its mission to small departments across Ohio.
