Welcome to the Ohio Bailiffs and Court Officers Association Spring Conference. This conference is open to any officer who has a duty to protect the public – Bailiffs, Court Security Officers, Probation and Parole Officers, Court Constables and Law Enforcement working in the court. Many of us have the same training needs when it comes to ensuring our safety and the safety of others.

The more days you attend the greater the discount on registration. The conference includes a full lunch on Wednesday and Thursday and dinner on Thursday evening at the Newark FOP Hall. The conference will also feature amazing raffle items from our vendors – including knives, firearms and body armor. We look forward to seeing you at our spring conference. 

Once you register online, you will receive an invoice for your registration.
