Nashville Predators and Law Enforcement Team Up for the 3rd Annual Law Enforcement Appreciation Night

Nashville Predators vs. Minnesota Wild

January 15, 2016

Nashville, TN—The Nashville Predators take on the Minnesota Wild at 7:00 p.m. on Saturday, January 16, in a partnership with the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund to host the 3rd Annual Law Enforcement Appreciation Night at Bridgestone Arena. This special night is dedicated to honoring the service and sacrifice of law enforcement officers, correctional officers, and their families, while raising awareness and funds for the National Law Enforcement Museum, to be built in Washington, DC.

Pre-game festivities on the plaza will begin at 5:00 pm with a display of police cars and tactical vehicles to include the Metro Nashville (TN) Police Department, Davidson County (TN) Sheriffs Department and a ‘drive sober simulator’ in front of the arena for public interaction. The Metro Nashville Police Department Honor Guard will present the colors during the National Anthem. A pre-game ceremony will honor Brentwood (TN) Police Department Lieutenant John Wood and Murfreesboro (TN) Police Department Officer Haley Alden, who will both receive the Remington Heroes Award for the heroic service they have provided to their respective communities.

"We are excited to bring together Tennessee law enforcement and the communities they serve to, once again, partner with the Nashville Predators for the third consecutive year for this special evening,” said Craig W. Floyd, Chairman & CEO of the Memorial Fund.
 
“Every 60 hours a law enforcement officer is killed in the United States. Coming together in the 'Music City' for professional hockey—and in honor of Tennessee law enforcement officers—is sure to be a great evening, and a great way to raise awareness for the Museum, while reflecting on the positive work they do to serve and protect in Tennessee and across the country. I want to extend special thanks to the Tennessee Association of Chiefs of Police for being a leader in the local law enforcement community, for their assistance in putting on this event tonight, and for their continued support to the law enforcement community and the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund.”

“This is a great event to honor and show our gratitude to the men and women who make our communities safe.  The Tennessee Association of Chiefs of Police (TACP) is thankful for the opportunity to participate in an event that shows deep appreciation and admiration for the law enforcement community,” said TACP Executive Director Maggi M. Duncan.  “We are also very grateful for our partnership with the Nashville Predators and National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund.”

The Nashville Predators are offering a special all-inclusive Law Enforcement Appreciation Night package starting at just $35 for law enforcement officers, their families and their supporters. The package includes a ticket to the game and a co-branded Nashville Predators and National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund commemorative hockey puck. Additionally, the Nashville Predators will donate $10 from each ticket sold to the Memorial Fund in support of the National Law Enforcement Museum.
