Needing Some Encouragement During the COVID-19 Crisis?

Consider these resources below…

We thought it would be helpful to provide our law enforcement leaders in Oregon with some items of encouragement during this COVID-19 crisis. Please see below for a few options to choose from. We hope to continue providing additional videos, podcasts, articles, etc… that we think might be of some help during these trying days. If you are a member of OACP and have a resource that you think fellow members would benefit from, please send our way and we will get it posted on this platform.

In the midst of these challenging times, Greg Young, 2020 Postponed/Upcoming Annual Conference Presenter, shares some words of encouragement. Click here to read a letter from Greg Young.
