Adapt & Overcome

On behalf of the OTOA Board of Directors and staff, I would like to welcome you to the 34th annual Ohio Tactical Officers Association Training Conference and Vendor Exhibition in Sandusky, Ohio.

With 2020 behind us, the time has come to look at the lessons learned. From the pandemic response to the self-serving politicians to the undeniable damage onto the brand of policing, we have no choice but to adapt and overcome.
