The Colorado Chapter of Concerns of Police Survivors, Inc. (COPS) contributes to the emotional and psychological well-being of the surviving family - the most hauntingly difficult aspect of the aftermath of sudden, tragic, often violent, line-of-duty death. Through our National Board, local Chapters, and national network of survivors, COPS is able to contact a newly-bereaved surviving family - sometimes within just days of the death. It helps the new survivors to see people who have survived the devastation, thus providing a feeling of hope.
The Mission Statement of C.O.P.S. reflects the strong belief that assistance, guidance, understanding, compassion, empathy, and hope for the future for the survivors of law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty begins with a caring, prepared agency.
While no person and no agency can be fully prepared for the trauma a law enforcement death inflicts, there are many things an agency can do to prepare for this possibility that will lessen the chaos that follows an officer death. Therefore, C.O.P.S. offers various programs and services for law enforcement survivors, as well as training, reference materials, and guidance for agencies.
C.O.P.S. also believes that a law enforcement death affects not only the surviving family and the agency, but the community as well.
