“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can
change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.” – Margaret
Truro Police Association is made up of Police Officers and
Telecommunicators of the Truro Police Department. It does not have an
affiliation with any union or labor relations group. It is merely a
fraternal and charitable organization within the department that allows us
to give back to our community.
The Association strives to promote a high level of commitment to
public safety with emphasis on community outreach. We support community
needs and activities through volunteering and donations. Sustainable
Cape, the Truro Educational and Enrichment Alliance, Truro Recreation
Department and the Truro Police K-9 Association are just a few of the
local organizations that we support.
Members of the Association participated in Trunk Or Treat, better
known as Halloween tailgating, where children could safely trick or treat
from the trunks of the participating vehicles. We worked hard collecting
toys for the Annual Toys for Tots “Stuff A Bus” Challenge this year. We
collected more than 700 toys that were distributed to families in need
right here on Cape Cod. Our Association donated funds for “Shop With A
Cop” where two local children received a $250 gift card for both school
supplies and Christmas gifts. Association members teamed up with the
Truro Fire Department and Lower Cape Ambulance to take part in “Homeless
for the Holidays”. We, once again, sponsored Operation Safe Ride, which
gave Truro residents a free taxi ride home on New Year’s Eve.
Our annual Senior Dinner continues to be a successful and revered
event. Held in March, members of the police and fire departments prepare
and cook a four course dinner for our seniors.
For the past several years the count has been
close to one hundred in attendance.
This will be our 28th

scholarship awards because of forever increasing tuition costs.
As we continue to focus outward, your
support is vital to sustain these programs and enables us to develop new
You should know that the Truro Police Association never conducts
telephone or door to door fundraising, nor do we contract with any
services that do so. This correspondence is the only way we raise money
for the projects we do.
Thank you for your consideration and continued support.
