Welcome to the Ontario Association of Police Educators

THE 2020 Conference is POSTPONED

On behalf of the Ontario Association of Police Educator’s Board of Directors, and the Ontario Police Video Training Alliance Board of Directors, We regret to announce that the 2020 OAPE / OPVTA AGM, is postponed due to the COVID-19 Pandemic.

We are all having to cope with these uncertain times as they continue to evolve.  We feel that the best course of action is to encourage social distancing by postponing the conference.  It is especially important that, as first responders, we take all measures to keep ourselves healthy should the need for our services arise during this worldwide event.

OAPE, in conjunction with OPVTA, will reassess the viability of conducting the same conference later this year.  Please make sure you check the www.OAPE.org website for more information, when the pandemic and precautionary measures subside.

We greatly appreciate your support and look forward to returning to offering such great events as our annual conference soon.  We wish you and your family the best through these challenging times.
Mike Thompson, President OAPE
Sean O’Brien, Board Chair OPVTA
