PEER SUPPORT

National Peer Support

 

Through our National Board, local Chapters, and national network of survivors, C.O.P.S. 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 sense of hope.  The C.O.P.S. National Office contacts each surviving family at least six times a year.  Quarterly newsletters provide messages of hope and encouragement and share stories of survivors' accomplishments since the death of the officer.

 

 

C.O.P.S. also sends a remembrance card to each survivor during the anniversary month of the officer's death.  Too often survivors are reluctant to share their feelings of grief because they don't want to be a "burden" to their friends and neighbors.  This card lets them know that others remember their officer and the sacrifice he or she made.  The holiday season can be especially difficult for survivors.  C.O.P.S. lets survivors know that it is okay to feel happy or sad, to continue holiday traditions or to start new traditions, to celebrate or not celebrate.  Survivors know that when they need it, support is just a phone call away!  Survivors of law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty according to Federal government criteria, regardless of the date of death, are encouraged to contact C.O.P.S. for more information.
