The Tennessee Association of Chiefs of Police recently held its 2010 Annual Conference in Knoxville, TN. This year’s Legislative Award went to Senator Randy McNally. The award was presented to the senator in recognition of his outstanding legislative service. Senator McNally has proven to be a dedicated leader and advocate for the law enforcement community. It was with great pride that Senator McNally accepted the award and then swore in the new president, Oak Ridge Chief David Beams, and the board of directors. Ironically, throughout his career he has been a source of legislative knowledge and support for the very issues and concerns for which the association works toward progressive public safety in our communities. This is the very reason he was given the award. His high level of involvement with the Tennessee Association of Chiefs of Police has produced a progressive, professional, productive team to promote and enhance the professional image of all law enforcement professionals.
“Randy McNally has proven to be a strong supporter of law enforcement every year he has served in the Tennessee General Assembly. That translates into safer communities in Tennessee. He is very worthy of this special recognition for his and his staff’s efforts. He shares the goals of the TACP, improving the integrity through higher standards and ethical leadership,” Outgoing President Gill
Kendrick said at the 40th Annual Banquet last month. The Tennessee Association of Chiefs of Police was formed in 1970 as a professional organization 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. Oak Ridge Chief David Beams commented, “Senator McNally’s hard work on our behalf challenges us to be the best at what we do. He has is a great friend to law enforcement. I could not think of a person more deserving than Senator Randy McNally to receive the 2010 TACP Legislative Award.”
