“I wanted to take a moment to thank OACP and the Scholarship Committee for helping our city in allowing me to attend the 2019 IACP conference. I took the opportunity and focused on attending training courses in three primary areas: Recruiting and Retaining employees, Officer Wellness Programs, and Small City Chief Issues. I plan on sharing what I learned at the coming Small City Chief’s meeting in February! The training and networking at the conference was outstanding and would not have happened without your support!  Thank you again, OACP!”

-Chief Ken Reuben, Philomath PD
