A Weekend of Support and Fun Between Men and Women Undergoing the Same Challenges 

C.O.P.S. Spouses Retreat is planned for surviving spouses of law enforcement officers who died in the line of duty, as determined by C.O.P.S. criteria.

What to Expect

After losing their spouse to a line-of-duty death, surviving spouses can be faced with difficulties such as altered life plans, raising children, and/or learning to live alone. At C.O.P.S. Spouses Retreat, you will spend the weekend bonding and receiving support from other peers who genuinely know how you feel.

C.O.P.S. Spouses Retreat provides a comfortable, safe place to unwind in a stress-free environment. It is here that you will meet licensed mental health professionals that can provide the tools needed to manage your grief every day in your future, they will facilitate various sessions that are designed to meet your needs, and even offer private one-on-one counseling if requested.

You will also get the chance to participate in fun activities that may challenge your limits and relax in group activities that encourage a continued support system beyond the retreat. By attending Spouses Retreat, you will leave with an increased sense of self-awareness and personal growth.

Session Examples
  • Preparing for Trial and Post-Conviction Rights
  • Managing Relationships with Others Who are Grieving
  • Anxiety – How to Regain a Sense of Control
  • Who Am I Now
  • Five Healthy Techniques to Manage Stress
