All too often a police officer's death is a sudden loss of one's life. Within seconds of the officer’s death, countless lives are affected and shattered. Spouses, parents, siblings, children, grandparents, relatives, friends, co-workers, and significant others all share the effects. All suffer a traumatic loss requiring special care and assistance to help deal with their loss and to learn to live with their suddenly changed circumstances. Concerns of Police Survivors, Metroplex chapter of C.O.P.S. is a non-profit organization that has been the link to help surviving law enforcement families put the pieces of their lives together and move on beyond their pain and suffering
Our aim is to offer longer-term support and friendship, after the initial wave of community and department support, media attention, and public sympathy has diminished for the survivor. As survivors ourselves, we recognize the needs and traumas each new survivor will face as the years pass.
There is no membership fee to join C.O.P.S. Each and every member has already paid the ultimate price -- the loss of a family member, colleague or friend to a line-of-duty death in law enforcement in the state of Texas.
Metroplex chapter of C.O.P.S. is a non-profit 501(c) (3) organization and is totally dependent upon donations from private donors, local companies and fund raisers. Donations received, allows C.O.P.S. to reimburse survivors for their travel expenses to Hands on Programs held for survivors, to meet other survivors and receive essential peer and professional support. It allows for training for law enforcement agencies on survivor victimization issues, and dealing with the day-to-day traumas experienced by officers working our increasingly violent streets. It also allows for the reimbursement of hotel expenses for survivors and their families, so that they may attend National Police Week and the National Survivors Conference in Washington, DC in May of the following year that their officer was killed in the line of duty. These are just a few of the programs that your donations help fund for survivors.
