Officer Haley Alden will be recognized Saturday, Jan. 16, 2016, at the third annual Law Enforcement Appreciation Night at Bridgestone Arena by the National Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund at the Nashville Predators game.

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.

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.”
