Silent Auction 
Each year, we take the opportunity to show our appreciation for the tremendous efforts by law enforcement, by hosting a silent auction. The proceeds of the are donated to a charitable organization benefiting the law enforcement community. Click here for the Silent Auction Donor Form.

TAPA members have been very generous in providing items to be auctioned. Cash, checks, and credit cards are accepted as payment. TAPA will award a check at the end of the meeting on December 11. Your donated items will allow us to increase our charitable donation.

This year, silent auction proceeds will benefit the Metro Police Christmas Charities is a 501(c)(3) non-profit charity that has been serving Davidson County (metro Nashville, TN) for over half a century.

altThe Metro Police Christmas Charities is a 501(c)(3) non-profit charity that has been serving Davidson County (metro Nashville, TN) for over half a century.

Metro Nashville police officers encounter numerous disadvantaged families on a daily basis. Families are selected based on recommendations from police officers. Each family receives baskets of groceries and toys to celebrate the holiday.

The Christmas Basket Program began in 1961. When Christmas arrived that year, Sgt. Joe Casey recommended to his fellow officers in patrol, that they collect money that might normally be spent on exchanging Christmas cards. That money would be used to purchase food for a needy family in the city.

From the generosity and kindness of employees and citizens alike, the program has grown considerably. Most recently, over 500 children received toys and each of those families also received 4 baskets of food. We were also fortunate enough to give out 143 brand new bicycles. In addition to all of those happy children, we also delivered food and personal items to 62 elderly families. Santa in blue has become a lasting memorial to the caring nature of five decades of police employees.

Law Enforcement Awards
A few years ago, our association established a law enforcement recognition committee that awards law enforcement officers and supply chain security agents who have made significant contributions in the furtherance of supply chain investigations.

We reach out to our membership for recommendations. These recommendations will be considered for outstanding investigative techniques, industry collaboration, initiative, and effort that is exceptionally above and beyond customary job duties within the last 18 months.
