The Ohio Small Police Department Association
The association is dedicated to bringing affordable training, low cost equipment to association members. With small Ohio departments struggling to fund ballistic vests, portable and mobile radios, operable patrol vehicles, extended training beyond the state mandated re-qualifications and OPOTA certified officers, the association has partnered with several training venues in each region, and several certified training instructors, bringing certified live scenario based training to association members. We have partnered with Virtual Academy, providing quality scenario based on-line training at a discounted price for association members. With this, there's still costs involved, more than a few Ohio small departments still will not be able to afford the discounted offers which provide yearly live and on-line needed training, provide ballistic vest to officers, provide communication devices or dependable patrol vehicles. The association will continue to assist struggling departments with their equipment and training needs. Thank you for your support.
