Why Chapters Exist


In the event a line of duty death occurs, the agency notifies the family and then C.O.P.S. for immediate response and continuous support, secure in the knowledge that C.O.P.S. will provide exceptional services to surviving families, affected co-workers and the community.



Core Value of C.O.P.S. Chapters


Integrity:  We uphold the values of confidentiality, respect, and honesty in every aspect of service to C.O.P.S.’ mission, setting the standard for everything we do.


Support:  We are dedicated to providing exceptional service and continual peer support for survivors, affected co-workers, and the law enforcement community.


Compassion:  We inspire hope through a safe, accepting and caring environment.


Fiscal Responsibility:  We recognize the faith our partners have placed in us, embracing transparency and responsibility in the management of our financial resources.
