Law Enforcement Exhibition, Training, Networking
Citizens of Sevierville can rest easy knowing that Tennessee’s finest will be in town from July 20-24 2015 for the Tennessee Sheriffs’ Association Annual Conference. Held at the Sevierville Event Center, this conference offers training and networking opportunities for Sheriffs, Chief Deputies, Jail Administrators, and other Law Enforcement Personnel.
The purpose of the Tennessee Sheriffs’ Association is:
To promote better and more effective law enforcement; maintain a high level of ethical conduct on the part of all sheriffs, their deputies, and their jail administrators; provide a forum for the exchange of knowledge and experience among all sheriffs; establish the highest degree of cooperation among the law-enforcing agencies in the State of Tennessee; bring the sheriffs of the various counties into close association and to promote cooperation in the conduct of the laws of Tennessee pertaining to the apprehension and prosecution of persons violating the laws of Tennessee; improve and encourage greater efficiency in the administration of sheriffs’ offices and to protect the welfare and interest of the members of the association.
The annual conference is an important gathering not only for additional training, but for networking and sharing on the job experiences. Just as important, the conference provides a relaxing, welcoming environment for ‘down time’ enjoying family and fellowship.
