Nashville Predators Host Inaugural Law Enforcement Appreciation Night

On Monday January 20, 2014, law enforcement officers from Tennessee, Kentucky and Alabama came together for the inaugural Nashville Predators Law Enforcement Appreciation Night at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville Tennessee. The Predators defeated the Dallas Stars 4-1 in an exciting game.

Through a special purchase incentive, 350 law enforcement tickets were sold. Proceeds from ticket sales raised approximately $3,500 to help build the first ever National Law Enforcement Museum.

Before the game, the Tennessee Highway Patrol Mobile Command Unity and Nashville (TN) Metro Police Department SWAT Vehicle and Bomb Squad displayed their vehicles outside the stadium for the public. Other departments that displayed police cars included the Brentwood (TN) Police Department, Knoxville (TN) Police Department, Nashville International Airport Police Department, and the Nashville (TN) Metro Police Mounted Horse Unit.

During the game, the Tennessee Highway Patrol Honor Guard presented the colors and the Tennessee Association of Chiefs of Police (TACP) hosted area state, local and federal law enforcement organizations, executives and their families in a VIP Suite.

The Predators and the Memorial Fund are already planning for a 2nd Annual Law Enforcement Night this coming fall.
