Texas Police Chiefs Association Conference Vendors Opens Today

codypeterMarch 26th, 2013, Austin, Texas- The Texas Police Chiefs Association Conference  vendor displays starts today. LawMate, the famous name in high end covert video is set up with a booth displaying new cutting-edge products along with about 75 other vendors.

The Texas Police Chiefs Association was founded in 1958 to promote, encourage and advance the professional development of Chiefs of Police and senior police management personnel throughout the State of Texas.

TPCA is a statewide law enforcement administrator’s organization for Texas and, as such, it is concerned on a statewide basis with all issues involving the criminal justice system. We believe that local chiefs of police possess a thorough knowledge of the law enforcement needs within the state.

Through an organization such as TPCA, issues affecting the criminal justice system can be addressed both with local elected officials and the state legislature. Over five decades after its founding, TPCA actively seeks to promote the professional practice of law enforcement administration, to represent the membership and the profession on issues of concern, and to encourage high ethical standards of conduct among law enforcement administrators through its code of ethics.


Here is the agenda-
