President's Welcome Message
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.
The strength of an organization is found in the membership and those who tirelessly give of themselves to better the whole. OACP is no exception.
Through our dedicated members, we support safe and livable communities throughout the State of Oregon..
As we look back over the past year and prepare for the year to come, I want to recognize the outstanding leadership of Chief Kenneth D. Johnson during his presidency.
As we look toward the upcoming year, we will continue our past efforts to build on our organizational strengths to further expand our membership, our services, our visibility,
and our outreach.
With the hard work of our dedicated and professional members, committees and Board of Directors, we will strive to:
I am proud to belong to one of the most respected and highly ethical professions in the world. Across this great state, police officers make a difference every single day.
OACP will continue to improve our profession, nurture our future chiefs, provide the best training possible and represent all of you with dignity and respect.
- Promote leadership development for current and future Oregon law enforcement executives.
- Promote best practices in policing through the Oregon Accreditation Alliance.
- Increase the visibility of OACP, both internally with our members, and externally throughout the state.
- Increase our membership
- Work collaboratively with the Oregon State Sheriff's Association, the Oregon District Attorney's Association and our other partners to promote safe and livable communities throughout the State of Oregon.
