When & Where
METRO NEW YORK CONCERNS OF POLICE SURVIVORS ( C.O.P.S.)
The Concerns of Police Survivors, (C.O.P.S.), is an organization whose mission since 1984 has been to “rebuild shattered lives” of the surviving family members and distraught co-workers of law enforcement officers who have died in the line of duty. Though the group draws strength from the collective experience and empathy of its members, C.O.P.S. quite frankly would prefer not to increase in number. Still, reality dictates there will always be a need for associations such as C.O.P.S. as statistics reflect on average 160-180 law enforcement officers are killed every year in the line of duty.
C.O.P.S. uniquely helps by providing emotional support and hands on healing programs needed to cope with a sudden or violent death. C.O.P.S. is a not for profit 501(c)(3) national organization with 54 chapters throughout the United States. Sadly, membership today has grown to more than 30,000 survivors. Thus, in response to this emergent need, we have chartered the Metro New York Concerns of Police Survivors Chapter.
For more information about the organization and Chapter, please contact Eileen Rafferty President, Metro New York C.O.P.S (email@example.com) or Dennis Jones, Executive Director, Metro New York C.O.P.S.
