Knoxville Police Chief David Rausch was named TACP's 2nd Vice President for the 2013-2014 year at the annual awards banquet. Tennessee State Senator Becky Massey joined former Memphis Police Director and current Deputy Commissioner of the TN Department of Safety and Homeland Security Larry Godwin, icons of law enforcement Retired Dyersburg Chief Bobby Williamson and seven time TACP President and Retired Metro Nashville Chief Joe Casey and chief law enforcement officials from across the state, as the Knoxville Chief accepted the challenge to serve as a leader on the board of the state's premier professional law enforcement organization.

Chief Rausch previously served as a District Director for the TACP and will serve as the 1st Vice President in 2014-2015 and TACP President in 2015-2016. Chief Rausch will be instrumental in carrying out TACP's mission to provide law enforcement agencies the opportunity to fulfill professional training, ethical leadership, management development and legislative representation; while promoting cooperation, communication, and the exchange of information to better serve the members of the TACP.

"We are looking forward to Chief Rausch's energy, perspective, and progressive leadership style as he becomes a leader not only to the TACP but in the law enforcement community," stated Murfreesboro Chief Glenn Chrisman, Immediate Past President.

The Tennessee Association of Chiefs of Police was founded in 1970 as a professional organization that is dedicated to the highest ideals of honor, leadership, and integrity to maintain the respect and confidence of their government officials, subordinates, the public, and their fellow members of law enforcement. The association works together to shape policy and provide executive level training to agencies statewide.
