I admit that when we first received word of this event I envisioned a kind of police rodeo: cuffing contests (like hog-tying), sharpshooting, door-busting, fingerprinting, Miranda Rights speed-reading, etc. But it turns out it's a benefit show featuring the non-policing talents of Nashville's finest. And the mayor's going to be there:
The Nashville Coalition Against Domestic Violence and the Metropolitan Nashville Police Department have teamed together to hold the 1st Annual Law Enforcement Talent Showcase. The event will be held at the Wildhorse Saloon Monday, Oct. 22 at 6:30 p.m. and will feature employees of the Metro Nashville Police Department who have special talents in singing, dancing and comedy. Families and children are welcome at this event. Tickets are 100% tax deductible: $15/person for general admission and $50/person for VIP seating (assigned tables up front). All proceeds will go to the Nashville Coalition Against Domestic Violence and Metro Police Officer Danita Marsh who was injured in the line of duty while working a domestic violence incident. Mayor Karl Dean is confirmed to open the event at approximately 6:30 p.m.
