C.O.P.S. Hands-On Programs are the heart of the organization. From offering grief counseling to providing peer support and additional resources, C.O.P.S.’ objective is to support each survivor in their journey to recovery. In the wake of a line-of-duty death, there is an inherent need for a safe place to grieve and to process the feelings and memories surrounding that loved one. With twelve Hands-On Programs, C.O.P.S. provides retreats specifically formatted to allow survivors to do just that.
Through their National Board, local chapters and national network of survivors, C.O.P.S. is able to contact a newly bereaved family – sometimes within just days of the death. It helps the new survivors to see people who have survived the devastation, thus providing a sense of hope. The C.O.P.S. National Office contacts each surviving family at least 5 times a year. Tri-annual newsletters provide messages of hope, encouragement and share stories of the survivors’ accomplishments since the death of the officer.
C.O.P.S. maintains a state-by-state compilation of death benefits so survivors and agencies will know what benefits are afforded to surviving families when an officer dies in the line of duty. These documents have become invaluable to state law enforcement organizations that are seeking information on the benefits paid to survivors. Benefits include education benefits, state benefits, worker’s compensation, pension, funeral benefits and miscellaneous organizations that assist.
