Where proceeds are going.
Concerns of Police Survivors (C.O.P.S.)Each year, between 140 and 160 officers are killed in the line of duty and their families and co-workers are left to cope with the tragic loss. C.O.P.S. provides resources to help them rebuild their shattered lives. There is no membership fee to join C.O.P.S., for the price paid is already too high.
C.O.P.S. was organized in 1984 with 110 individual members. Today C.O.P.S. membership is over 30,000 families. Members include spouses, children, parents, siblings, significant others, and affected co-workers of officers killed in the line of duty according to Federal government criteria. C.O.P.S. is governed by a National Board of law enforcement survivors. All programs and services are administered by the National Office in Camdenton, Missouri. C.O.P.S. has over 50 Chapters nationwide that work with survivors at the grass-roots level.
C.O.P.S. programs for survivors include the National Police Survivors’ Conference held each May during National Police Week, scholarships, peer-support at the national, state, and local levels, “C.O.P.S. Kids” counseling reimbursement program, the “C.O.P.S. Kids” Summer Camp, “C.O.P.S. Teens” Outward Bound experience for young adults, special retreats for spouses, parents, siblings, adult children, in-laws, and co-workers, trial and parole support, and other assistance programs.
C.O.P.S. knows that a survivor’s level of distress is directly affected by the agency’s response to the tragedy. C.O.P.S., therefore, offers training and assistance to law enforcement agencies nationwide on how to respond to the tragic loss of a member of the law enforcement profession. C.O.P.S. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. C.O.P.S. programs and services are funded by grants and donations. Law Enforcement agencies and organizations who support C.O.P.S. at the $250 level or above will be identified as “Partners in Law Enforcement” with C.O.P.S. and will be included on a “Partners” banner that will be displayed at National Police Week.
The women behind Krawl’n For The Fallen and why it’s important to them.
Thirteen years ago on Father’s Day my brother-n-law Sgt Michael W Johnson from the Vt State Police was killed in the line of duty. He left behind his wife, 3 young children, 5 brothers and sisters his parents and in laws as well as many nieces nephews and co-workers. Concerns of Police Survivors was the organization that helped my family rebuild our lives. It took me 5 years to start giving back to this organization and this event will allow us to help the thousands of families that utilize their services. There are over 30,000 families that need our help and each year on average an additional 140 to 160 families are added. It is my mission to do as much as I can to help these families. Which is why this event means so much to me.
My name is Holli Long, I am a wife and mother of 2. I’m an RN and work in a local hospital. I love to wheel and I am a huge supporter of our law enforcement and first responders. I have joined the effort to help raise money for Concerns of Police survivors not only because I know it’s a great cause but I have great friends who have lost loved ones in the line of duty and have utilized this organization.
Aside from supporting Chrissy, to be apart of such a great event that supports, and helps Fallen Families. I truly cannot imagine the pain that comes along with moving on in life without a husband, a father, a brother or sister, or a fellow officer. My significant other is a local officer and my daughter is future law enforcement/ Military. I have learned with each devastating story, they need continued support for the rest of their lives, and however I can help, that’s the least I can do.
