Please see OACP's President Matt Workman's comments on our recent Fall Conference (and pictures) below: "I can’t express how happy it was to get back to some in-person training again at the OACP Fall Conference last week at the Dayspring Fellowship in Keizer! It was amazing to see so many of you face-to-face again and to share some handshakes and even a few hugs. A huge shoutout to Dayspring Fellowship for accommodating the two associations and for the delicious snacks and meals. For those of you who were unable to attend I hope you still registered to receive the training via video as we had some great presentations and discussions. Speaking of the training, kudos to the Education & Training Committee for putting together a great line-up of quality training. Dr. Tamara Herold had a tremendous presentation on ignition and prevention of crowd violence. DPSST Director Jerry Granderson talked about officer morale during difficult times with a very informative and interactive session. Hopefully the camera was able to stay with Director Granderson as he definitely likes to move around the room! The afternoon session had a great panel discussion on recruiting and retention of officers in our challenging environment. This was followed by a very heartfelt and important discussion with Chief Marcia Harnden and Sheriff Jef Van Arsdall regarding caring for our people during loss and tragedy, specifically the suicide of a Benton County Deputy. The afternoon session had a review of legislative changes to arbitration and other employees-related bills by Katie Kammer of CIS and Ashley Driscoll of Berry, Hammond, and Elsner. The day was capped off with the ever-energetic Nate Sassaman with his presentation on leadership through change and reform." ... See MoreSee Less

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.
