IMPORTANT INFORMATION

It is not new that the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has challenged all of us and how we manage our daily lives. According to Section IX: EMERGENCY ACTION of the Ohio Crime Prevention Association (OCPA) Constitution and Bylaws, it is the primary duty of the OCPA Board to safeguard the interests of the Association and those composing its membership.

On Friday, June 12, 2020, the Ohio Crime Prevention Association Board, by unanimous vote, determined that it is in the best interest of the OCPA membership, due to COVID-19 and its effects on public safety, the OCPA Board of Directors adopted the attached Emergency Resolution, and have CANCELLED the Ohio Crime Prevention Association 2020 Annual Training Conference and annual membership meeting.

OCPA is notifying our sponsors, vendors, exhibitors, and registered attendees regarding this decision, as well as posting the notification on the OCPA website. Anyone who has already made payment for the 2020 Annual Training Conference may apply their registration fee for the 2021 OCPA Annual Training Conference, (Sunday, March 28, 2021 – Wednesday, March 31, 2021 regardless of any increase in registration cost), or request a refund.

The status quo will be maintained for the OCPA Board of Directors until the 2021 OCPA Annual Training Conference and Membership Meeting. The OCPA Board will make all efforts to present the 2020 OCPA Awards within the award winners’ jurisdiction during an event(s) to be determined.

Thank you,

OCPA President, Rebecca Gaytko and Board of Directors
