The Oregon Accreditation Alliance exists to improve the quality of law enforcement agencies in the State of Oregon and ultimately the quality of services provided to the citizens of the state.



Physical Abilities Test

The OACP purchased and deployed ten ORPAT systems in police agencies strategically located throughout the state in order to make the Oregon Physical Abilities Test accessible to all Oregon police agencies.

Thank you Forest Grove PD for this friendly reminder! Lets make sure all children are safe! ...

The 2016-2017 School Year is just around the corner! The Forest Grove Police Department will have an increased presence around the area schools during the next few weeks in an effort to encourage safe driving in school zones. Remember - many school zones have traffic changes when students are around, and more busses will be on the road as they prepare for students next week. We will be particularly looking out for speeding, passenger safety (such as seat belts, car seats and booster seats), and obedience to posted traffic signs - including the red lights on school busses. School begins for Forest Grove students on August 29th and 30th.

Thank you Beaverton PD for this reminder! ...

This Labor Day, Remember: Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over This Labor Day weekend, families and friends will be celebrating the end of the summer. Sadly, this festive time has also become a dangerous time for America’s roads, as many drunk drivers get behind the wheel after celebrating. For this reason, the Beaverton Police Department is partnering with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration to stop drunk drivers and help save lives. The high-visibility national enforcement campaign, Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over, started on August 19, 2016 and will end on September 5, 2016. During this period, local law enforcement will show zero tolerance for drunk driving. Increased state and national messaging about the dangers of driving drunk, and increased officers on the road, aim to drastically reduce drunk driving on our nation’s roads. According to NHSTA, on average, over 10,000 people died each year (2010 to 2014) in drunk-driving crashes. During the 2014 Labor Day holiday weekend (6 p.m. August 29 – 5:59 a.m. September 2), 40 percent of the fatalities in traffic crashes involved drunk drivers, which was the highest percentage over the five years 2010 to 2014. And nighttime proves to be the most dangerous time to be out on the roads: During the 2014 Labor Day holiday period, 83 percent of drunk-driving crash fatalities occurred between 6 p.m. and 5:59 a.m. – as compared to half of all drunk- driving crash fatalities throughout the rest of that year. Remember: there is never an excuse to drink and drive. If you choose to break the law, Beaverton Police officers will see you before you see them. Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over

The Oregon Association Chiefs of Police was founded in 1953 with the intended purpose of enhancing the professionalism of Law Enforcement in Oregon. The founding Chiefs envisioned creating an association that would promote training and information sharing to facilitate the professional growth of Chiefs of Police, command staff, supervisors, line officers and support personnel. The Oregon Association Chiefs of Police rapidly became a leader both on the state and national level in the effort to enhance the profession.
