NEW for 2024

Sponsor an Officer

We are proud to introduce a powerful new initiative for 2024 - the "Sponsor an Officer" program. This unique offering provides a remarkable opportunity for individuals and organizations to give back and support law enforcement officers in their quest to receive life-saving training at the OTOA Tactical Operations and Public Safety Conference.

Why It Matters: Without this program's essential financial support, many officers would be unable to access the invaluable training needed to keep people safe. Training is often the first thing to suffer in budget cuts at law enforcement agencies nationwide. By sponsoring an officer, you can help bridge this gap and empower these dedicated professionals to serve their communities effectively.

Two Tiers of Support:

  • Tier One $450: Sponsor an officer for the full week of training, ensuring they gain the comprehensive skills and knowledge required for their crucial roles.
  • Tier Two $1200: Sponsor an officer for the full week of training, including lodging. Providing officers with on-site accommodation at the event hotel enhances their training experience and creates additional networking and learning opportunities.

Unite in Support: Officers from across the state gather for this five-day conference, bringing diverse experiences and expertise to the table. Your support through the "Sponsor an Officer" program will enable these officers to receive training that is essential to public safety and community well-being.

Charitable Deduction: The Ohio Tactical Officers Association (OTOA) is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit charity as recognized by the IRS. This means that your monetary support of the OTOA's Sponsor an Officer Program may be tax-deductible. However, it's essential to consult with a qualified tax professional to ensure compliance with IRS rules when making donations to a 501(c)(3) organization. This allows you to maximize any potential tax benefits while supporting the OTOA's charitable mission.

Keg Sponsor: $500

Increase your company's visibility and make a lasting impact by sponsoring kegs of beer at our two hospitality events. By sponsoring, you help enhance the event experience and increase brand recognition.
