  • Name One Place In Ohio

    Okay enough is enough. Please name one place and one Police Chief or one Sheriff in the Great State of Ohio that has armed officers CERTIFIED OPOTC by the Attorney General Of The State Of Ohio as PEACE OFFICERS on patrol as police officers.

    Name of agency and name of agency head please.

    According to Ohio Revised Code this would be illegal so let us know so department and agency head can make the newspaper and 11 o'clock news.

      I'm with Bodie on this...
      Some places won't even let you test until you are 21, let alone hire you. Hell, they won't even hire auxiliary officers until the age of 21.

        We have some kids and rookies or people who claim to be rookies say they are going into academies at 18 and that some Sheriff's and Villages are hiring them as gun totin' cops under 21.
        Since thie is illegal I am chlallenging them to name agencies and departments heads so OPOTC can investigate (Attorney General).
        Unless OPOTC signs off on academy certfication and on individual certificates in the State of Ohio you are not a Certified Peace Officer and thus not a cop.

        I am worried to think we have under age people acting as cops thinking they are certified out there making what would be illegal traffic stops and arrests.

        So Names of agencies and Chiefs please or Sheriff's.
        You cannot enter an OPOTC Certfication Acdemy unless 20 and will be 21 upon completion.

                    I know. AG rep confirmed for me the rules that 21 is it. So if I get a taker they are dog meat. That would just prove they are not a cop and not at all who they say they are.

                        Went to a county fair in southern Ohio. Deputy directing traffic had on short sleeve shirt Blue jeans, Gun was on his pants belt, handcuffs hangging off back of belt and no hat. Sad but some counties are very poor.

                        We at one time cleaned out some used uniforms, hats etc from our supply area and gave them to a couple of poor counties.

                            On the academy subjuect Bodie: From what I have read here, in Ohio people can put themselves through the academy right? Do they have a background and stuff done before they are accepted in academy? Just curious.
                            For the cops out there: You are an adult. If you want to write someone, write them. If you don't want to write someone, then don't write them.

                              Normally a basic application is done since the Attorney General oversees the academies. But self sponser in Ohio is worthless because you could spend all that time and if in two yrs after completion you don't get a position the letter of completion is worthless.

                              Ohio only issues peace officer certfications to sworn police officers not civilains looking for jobs.

                              That is why we stress that college is more imprtant to obtain a good law enforcment job here then a so called academy letter of completion.A degree or college credits NEVER expires.
