Dear TPCA Member,
The 2024 Annual Texas Police Chiefs Association Conference will be held on Galveston Island,
Texas, March 25-28, 2024. The conference and exposition will be held at Galveston Island Convention Center.
The conference will feature outstanding speakers to help you stay ahead of the trends with informative topics for both large and small agencies. There will be multiple break-out training sessions on a variety of subjects with TCOLE hours available. In addition, we have a separate training course for those interested in the Best Practices Accreditation/Accreditation Training Program, so please bring your program managers.
We will once again host the specialized training for attorneys who serve as legal advisers to law enforcement agencies. This includes those who may work full- or part-time in that capacity. We encourage your Law Enforcement Legal Advisor to attend and participate in all conference activities.
We had a record number of vendors last year and there were many innovations for law enforcement enhancement. There will be a lot of time to visit exhibitors during the conference. You are encouraged to bring the person in charge of purchasing to the conference. Day passes to the exhibit hall are also available for your officers and staff at no charge.
Opening ceremonies will begin at 9 a.m. on Tuesday, March 26, 2024. Conference concludes at noon on Thursday, March 28, 2024.
Please don't forget to register your SPOUSE OR GUEST.
