Last week, Aftermath Marketing representatives Stephen Brown and Mike Webster attended the Tennessee Chiefs of Police Conference in Chattanooga, TN. The three day event featured vendors, speakers, and seminars, as well as plenty of formal and informal networking opportunities for law enforcement professionals. Chiefs and other members came from all over the state, visiting with service providers and learning more about the innovative offerings available to best help them assist Tennessee families.
According to the TACP website, “The Tennessee Association of Chiefs of Police was formed over forty years ago by Chiefs Joe Casey, Joe Fowler, and Bobby Williamson in order to improve the professionalism and communication among police chiefs and other officials locally and statewide. During those forty plus years, our association has become a leader in the law enforcement profession by providing professional training, management development, legislative updates, grant information, partnerships with state and federal agencies and addressing issues that affect law enforcement on a daily basis. We are an association based on leadership that promotes integrity, commitment, and service to mankind.”
Aftermath’s Mike Webster described the feeling of the show as overwhelmingly positive. “The Chiefs were very thankful of our attendance,” he relates. “We met a lot of Chiefs and had good conversations with them. The majority of our day was spent introducing our services to those who were not yet familiar with what we do.”
While attending the event, Stephen and Mike gave away a 5.11 tactical bag and PPE kit to one lucky TACP member. You can see Deputy Chief Kenneth Ray of the Ashland City Police Department at the top of this page, showing off his first attempt at a civilian smile! To add even more irony to the conference, Mike also had the pleasure of meeting the Brentwood, Tennessee’s Chief of Police, Jeff Hughes. Mike himself was the Chief of Brentwood, Maryland’s Police Department for several years. “We chatted for a bit. It was a good conversation.”
Throughout the year, Aftermath participates in conferences and educational seminars designed to inform law enforcement personnel about our services and the importance of professional crime scene cleaning. We also routinely sponsor giveaways directed at the police community, such as the PPE Giveaway and our Annual K9 Contest, and by supporting and attending charity outings and conferences like TACP. We also sponsor a special LE interests Facebook, called Aftermath Cares.
