Tampa Bay Area Chiefs of Police Association

The Tampa Bay Area Chiefs of Police Association was founded in 1957 with the purpose of allowing local law enforcement executives a forum to exchange information and ideas, as well as to coordinate resources and operations in the most efficient and effective manner possible.

With over one hundred members from over thirty agencies representing seven counties surrounding Tampa Bay, our organization is now one of the most influential of its kind in the United States. Not only do we continue with the established mission, but the TBACPA has become a major partner in community service as well. Each year, we help to host fundraising events to benefit charity organizations such as the Gold Shield Foundation and Police Athletic League. We also provide scholarship awards to local students seeking education in the field of criminal justice.

Membership in the organization is not limited to police administrators. We also have several in our ranks who represent the business interest of our profession. These valuable partners work in private industry with ties to the law enforcement mission, and with their help, we are much more effective in providing critical public services.

If you would like more information about the organization, or to request a membership application, please e-mailus.
