We are happy to hear that you are interested in becoming a member of BadgeWives of Tampa Bay Inc. We will be happy to give you a little information about our organization. We recently became a non profit 501c3 organization this past year and welcome all Tampa Bay Area LEO wives and female officers. Our group is a little different than many of the other online LEO spouse groups. We meet up at least once a month at various locations for us ladies to have a wonderful time in person. For example, a few of our past events included going to the movies, meal prep party, wine tasting, girls night at the range, crafting, etc. We also have exciting events arranged for the upcoming months! A big thing that we also do is get together and make things for the officers for Christmas, Easter, Thank a Police Officer Day, etc. in which those events are also kid friendly.
Finally, the most important thing that we do is be there for one another. Being a LEO spouse is something we all have in common and we all tend to experience things or go through things that a non LEO spouse would truly understand, so it’s nice being able to reach out or talk with someone who understands what you may be going through or experiencing.
As previously stated, we are now a 501c3 organization, so if you are interested in becoming a member, we do require a $30 annual membership fee at sign up. These dues cover some of our overhead expenses and operating costs. Please send us an email at email@example.com and we will be happy to send you our quick 1 page application
