Welcome to the 2019 Oklahoma Association of Chiefs of Police and Oklahoma Police Chiefs Training Foundation Annual Conference. We are excited to return to the Choctaw Resort and Casino in Durant, Oklahoma June 24th – 27th. Last year we had an outstanding conference at this venue and attendees requested a return for this year’s conference.
We have added an additional day to the conference this year so that we may better serve our attendees with additional hours toward their annual training requirements. Our courses are diverse with classes in legal, management, and operational topics to cover all levels of law enforcement. Classes will be held on Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday with the Exhibitor Hall being the spotlight on Tuesday.
With the new initiative at the OACP/OPCTF of becoming a leading provider of continuing educational training, this conference will attract vendors that will provide the newest and most advanced technology and equipment for criminal justice professionals. We will spend a full day with the Exhibitor Hall open for attendees and their guests to meet with these representatives. We would also encourage all law enforcement employees from across the State to visit the Exhibitor Hall at no cost.
The conference will provide other entertainment after classes are over for the day. If you haven’t attended the Monday evening social and karaoke event you are missing out! Last year we had a large number of attendees and vendors attend and had a great time. Tuesday evening is our Annual Awards Banquet where we recognize outstanding officers and agencies. Aside from planned activities, the Choctaw Resort and Casino has much to offer. A swimming pool that is second to none is open for all attendees. The facility also contains a movie theater, bowling alley, arcade center, entertainment, and restaurants that you and your family can enjoy.
We hope to see you at this year’s Annual conference! Please come prepared to enjoy our outstanding speakers and presentations; participate in the many activities and events; and hopefully after four days you will return home refreshed and better prepared to lead.
