OACP Improving services for 2017

2017 brings in new changes and accessible tools for our members. If you have noticed, the OACP website has made significant changes to the website with new and exciting apps that are beginning to roll out. We have had several members test the new online law enforcement directory and have received very excellent reviews. All members will begin receiving instructions to register online for the directory, This is an exclusive benefit for our members.

OACP will also begin offering the Chief to Chief magazine to the readership via digital copy will be professionally designed and offer it as “flip page” style. Included in the magazine will be photo’s that will come alive within the magazine as additional video’s for further information and in depth coverage.

Stay tuned for a change to better our abilities for delivery of new and improved services that are brought to new technology standards.

Learn about the benefits of OACP membership!

OACP is the largest law enforcement executive and administrative association in Oklahoma. Our members come from many facets of professional agencies and departments throughout the state. The Oklahoma Association of Chiefs of Police has a strong objective of goals that are to foster strong ethical standards and a commitment of professional conduct in law enforcement through education, professional training, communications and improving laws that protect the citizens of communities throughout Oklahoma.


The greatest benefit of the organization is the ability of all law enforcement to network through various channels of services, resources, committees, other agencies and model policies through a vast network of other agencies with the same goals in mind.

Feel free to contact Executive Director – Chief Phil Cotten (ret.) for further information at Phil@TheOACP.org.

The next scheduled class for the OACP New Chiefs Command Staff Training starts April 3, 2017 through April 7, 2017. This class is required for anyone that is promoted or hired as a new chief or has been elected. We also have many existing chiefs that return as a refresher course and command staff members who desire a career in the near future as a new chief. All new chiefs must attend this class within one year of assuming the position of chief of police.
