Law Enforcement Training Symposium (LETS)

Renamed and relocated: Attorney General’s annual conference will have whole new look, feel for 2024

The Attorney General’s Law Enforcement Conference, the preeminent gathering of state, county and municipal law enforcement in Ohio, has been renamed, relocated and reimagined – all as a way of advancing Attorney General Yost’s goal of providing first-class police training for today and the future.

The two-day event, now called the Law Enforcement Training Symposium (LETS), will take place Sept. 30-Oct 1 at Kalahari Resorts & Conventions in Sandusky. Preceding the symposium — on the afternoon of Sept 29 — the Ohio Peace Officer Training Academy will host a career fair, also at Kalahari.

Additional details – including a new order of events, streamlined registration and workshop information – will be provided here as plans are solidified.

Award nominations being sought

In keeping with event tradition, the Attorney General will present the Distinguished Law Enforcement Awards during the 2024 Law Enforcement Training Symposium.

To that end, the Ohio Peace Officer Training Academy is seeking nominations in eight award categories, including one new category and one that has been renamed:

  • Victoria Allen Civilian Leadership 
  • Training
  • Community Service
  • Blue Line (formerly the Mark Losey Service Award)
  • Group Achievement
  • Lifetime Achievement
  • Exemplary Response (new this year)
  • Valor

This year’s award winners will be honored at a banquet on the evening of Monday, Sept. 30.

The awards criteria and nomination instructions are available for downloading at this link. Please submit nomination forms, supporting documentation and a JPG photo of the nominee(s) electronically by May 31, 2024, to the Ohio Law Enforcement Awards Committee at LEAwards@OhioAGO.gov.
