Reflections on the OACP from our President, Chief Kris Allison

Welcome to the Oregon Chiefs of Police Association Website.  Our Association is dedicated to the pursuit of achieving Excellence in Police Leadership for our members.  Our Association represents 140 police agencies who serve approximately 5600 police officers in the State of Oregon.  As an Association we strive to further the professionalism of Law Enforcement in Oregon.

The Oregon Chiefs of Police Association prides itself in the partnerships it has built with federal, state and local organizations that help to meet the needs of our agencies from around the State.  We will continue to face challenges in our organizations but with advocacy, diligently working on legislation and engaging with our communities we are ready to face these challenges.

In 2019 we will be focusing on issues that are challenging public safety in our Nation and our State such as the future of policing in the 21st Century, individuals experiencing homelessness and building public trust.  The Oregon Chiefs of Police Association will continue to bring relevant and high caliber training to our association along with timely information so members will have access to the information and knowledge they need to do their jobs in this quickly changing profession.

I am proud to represent the Oregon Chiefs of Police Association as its President for 2019.  I look forward to building relationships within the Association and furthering partnerships with our stakeholders to continue to enhance our profession of law enforcement.
