Welcome to the website for the Tennessee Association of Chiefs of Police. Our website is designed to give you all the information that you may need as a member or a visitor to our website. Our association has been in existence for over 45 years and we consist of over 500 active members, over 240 retired members, and a large amount of our corporate partners are members as well.

The TACP is an organization committed to professionalism, training, community outreach, and networking among law enforcement executives across the state of Tennessee. We strive for our training to be current and applicable to your position as a director of your law enforcement agency. Our association is devoted to developing direction for our member agencies and giving them professional services that they can use on a daily basis. We work very diligently with our state legislature on public safety legislation to make your community safer and more suitable for our families.

I sincerely hope you will take the time and look at the resources our website provides. I strongly encourage you to attend one of our meetings for not only the excellent training that is conducted but for the networking among law enforcement executives from across the state. No agency is too small, no agency is too large! I can assure you that if something is happening in your community that is impacting your law enforcement agency, another agency in this state has dealt with this issue before.

Please call on me, Executive Director Maggi Duncan, Member Services Manager Becky Shanklin, or Special Programs Manager Janessa Edwards if we can be of any assistance to you. Remember, we work for you!

Kevin Arnold
Chief of Police for the Smyrna Police Department
President of the TACP
