Concerns of Police Survivors, Arizona, is one of 53 chapters around the country that are a part of a nationwide not-for-profit organization. Members of C.O.P.S. are always prepared to help survivors when they need it, where they need it. The organization’s mission has always been to “Rebuild Shattered Lives” of the survivors. C.O.P.S. has a membership comprised of more than 35,000 people who have identified themselves as survivors nationwide. Unfortunately, that membership continues to grow as 140-160 law enforcement officers are killed every year in the line of duty.
Concerns of Police Survivors, Inc. (C.O.P.S.) provides resources to help in the rebuilding of the lives of surviving families and affected co-workers of law enforcement officers who have died in the line of duty as determined by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), Public Safety Officers' Benefit (PSOB), National Law Enforcement Officers' Memorial Fund (NLEOMF) or Fraternal Order of Police (FOP) 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.
