0817-cowboys_beach_day_copsTraining camp ain't cheap -- TMZ has learned, it cost the Dallas Cowboys roughly $25,000 just to hire a police detail for the 3-week program.

Oxnard Police Department Commander Andrew Salinas tells TMZ, the tab covers a wide range of services involving police and public safety -- staffing 6-8 officers on site per day on weekdays ... and 12 on the weekends.

Salinas says the training camp crowd ranges from 3,000-12,000 fans every day -- reaching capacity on weekends ... which is why they needed the additional officers on Saturdays and Sundays.

We're told the charges also include the use of vehicles as well as a mobile command center (an awesome big RV with computers and radio systems and stuff) ... a player favorite.

Training camp wrapped up Thursday -- and we're told the 80-man roster celebrated their last day with a relaxing trip to the beach at Mandalay Bay Beach Resort (accompanied by police).

0817-cowboys_beach_dayWhen they arrived, we're told the players were immediately met by an overeager group of fans hoping for autographs -- so Tony Romo took one for the team ... and offered to sign their stuff in exchange for a little privacy.
