Concerns of Police Survivors, Incorporated (COPS for short), works with families of officers who have been killed in the line of duty. They are actively involved in Law Enforcement Memorial Week, providing time for counseling and healing for family members. They also provide outstanding training throughout the year to families as well as those who work with police officers and their families.
COPS was responsible for brining the COPS kids to the FBI National Academy while I was there earlier this year.
Every year “COPS Kids” travel to the FBI Academy in Quantico, Virginia in May while they are attending the law enforcement memorial activities in D.C. They are children who have recently lost a law enforcement parent who was killed in the line of duty. The FBI agents in training and the National Academy students participate in an all day activity to spend time with these kids. It is just one of the many activities that Concerns of Police Survivors is involved in.
They are a great organization. I would encourage you to click on the logo at the top of this blog to go to their website and learn more.
