This three-day course provides an innovative look into the theory and practice for certifying detention officers for the State of Oklahoma. The OSA Detention Officer Academy: Train the Trainer is designed to meet minimum requirements set forth by 74 O.S. § 192 (OSCN 2023) and guidelines promulgated rules pursuant to the provisions of the section.
