WHAT IS C.O.P.S.?
Concerns of Police Survivors
Provide resources to assist in the rebuilding of lives of surviving families and affected co-workers of law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty as determined by Federal criteria. Furthermore, C.O.P.S. provides training to law enforcement agencies on survivor victimization issues and educates the public of the need to support the law enforcement profession and its survivors.
We are committed to honoring the fallen by rebuilding, educating, and supporting law enforcement survivors and agencies with excellence, integrity, and compassion.
Our membership is over 300 families - it includes spouses, children, parents, siblings, significant others, and affected co-workers of law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty according to federal government criteria. There is no membership fee to join - the price you've paid is already too high.
We provide a police week orientation for new surviving family members and co-workers, peer-support, and trial and parole support. We also host annual social events like our Summer Picnic and end of year Holiday Party, bringing surviving family members and co-workers together for an enjoyable and fun time.
Benefits can be found on the Public Safety Officer Benefits (PSOB) website at www.psob.gov. You can also reach them by phone at (888) 744-6513.
Arizona chapter members have received training to assist you in completing paperwork.
