Thank you for your interest in the Tennessee Association of Chiefs of Police. If you are a law enforcement leader, we would like to invite you to join our association. As a member, you can take full advantage of the many benefits we offer on the website such as the state accreditation program and sample policies as well as much more. We also pride ourselves on the world class training we provide including services to promote personal and professional development for our law enforcement leaders.

Founded in 1970, we are proud to be entering into our 50th year as an association. For the last half century, the TACP has proudly worked to be the impetus for the advancement of professional law enforcement across Tennessee. We have also established a unique space where law enforcement leaders can come together to cooperate and share knowledge as well as learn from other leaders from across the nation and the globe. We are well recognized amongst the Tennessee Legislature and often work alongside them to shape policy and push creative initiatives to benefit public safety and communities throughout the state. The TACP is one of the most respected law enforcement associations in the country with over 1000 active, retired, and corporate members. The TACP is honored to have had the privilege to serve the communities across this great state the last 50 years and know we owe it all to the strength and fortitude of our past and current members.

Nevertheless, we are assured in the fact that the best days of this association lay ahead as we continue to grow our members and expand our impact across Tennessee. Our strength begins with our members and extends to our State, our cities, and our communities. If you are not yet a member, we would highly encourage you to join and take full advantage of the TACP for not only yourself, but also your agency and community. If you have any questions, concerns, or recommendations, please do not hesitate to contact me, our Executive Director Maggi Duncan, Member Services Manager Becky Shanklin, or Special Programs Manager Janessa Edwards and we will do our best to assist you.
