“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.”  – Margaret Mead 



With this thought in mind, the Truro Police Association continues to look for ways to support our residents and visitors alike. The 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.


Members of the Association participated again 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 500 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 for back to school supplies and Christmas gifts. We also sponsored a local family in need and bought Christmas gifts because no child should ever go without on Christmas day.  We, once again, sponsored Operation Safe Ride, which gave Truro residents a free taxi ride home on New Year’s Eve.


We continue to donate to the Truro Central School each year for the 6th grade field trip to Washington D.C.  Our Open House during Truro Treasures Weekend included K-9 demonstrations, State Police Helicopter, SWAT Bearcat Vehicle, Police Motorcycle and Cruiser tours, Fire Department demonstrations and station tours.


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 25th year.


We continue to offer several scholarships to graduating Truro students who seek to further their education at a college or university.  A continuing education scholarship is also awarded to a college student from Truro wishing to continue on.  Each year we receive more applications and our goal has been to increase the amount to our 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 ones.


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.
