Ohio Peace Officer Training Academy
Before you can be employed as a police officer in Ohio, you must successfully complete the OPOTA. Your training is state mandated and covers firearms, legal administration, human relations, traffic, patrol, driving, subject control, investigations, civil disorder, physical conditioning and other aspects of law enforcement.
Students may be commissioned (sponsored) by local law enforcement agencies, or they may enter the academy as open enrollment students.
Our academy is OPOTA approved.
