TDS presents Hometown Hero Award to Nampa Police Volunteers

Nampa, Idaho – TDS Telecommunications LLC (TDS®) has presented its second Hometown Hero Award, recognizing a group of Treasure Valley community members for making a difference in their community.

The Nampa Police Volunteers have spent thousands of hours over the years helping the Nampa Police Department with events and traffic incidents, searches for missing people, administrative tasks, and many other duties.

TDS honored the group with its Hometown Hero Award during the Nampa Coffee with a Cop event Oct. 5.

“We are excited to recognize the Nampa Police Volunteers for dedicating so many hours of their own time to ensure the safety of their fellow community members,” said Pamela Hayn, TDS associate manager of Field Marketing in Nampa. “Their spirit of making the community a better place embodies what we sought to spotlight with our Hometown Hero Awards.”

“The Nampa Police Department would not be able to accomplish many tasks in our community if it wasn’t for the hard work of our volunteers,” said Nampa Police Chief Joe Huff.

As part of the Hometown Hero Award, TDS is donating $1,000 to the Nampa Police Volunteers. For more information on the organization, visit
