A Capital Campaign for the Expansion and Renovation of the C.O.P.S. National Office

Letter from the National President


Our Growth

The current climate in the United States towards law enforcement has created a demand for services beyond expectations for C.O.P.S.  The recent random targeting of officers has shaken law enforcement families to their core; and with every new attack, America’s law enforcement survivors are taken back to the day their officer sacrificed their lives.


The C.O.P.S. staff currently plans 32 major events across the nation every year, and there is a tremendous need to not only hire more staff but to triple the size of the C.O.P.S. National Office.  Without more staff, C.O.P.S. simply can not continue to expand our much needed services.


The expansion of the facility will address our current shortage for office space for staff and allow for the continuing growth of programs planned for over 37,000 survivors affected by line-of-duty death and America’s 800,000 law enforcement officers who continue to put their lives on the line each and every day.



Our Challenge

There is an immediate need to initiate a capital campaign to add approximately 9,300 square feet to the original C.O.P.S. headquarters and renovate the current facility to blend with the new addition.  When completed, the C.O.P.S. National Office will have the ability to house 24 employees to allow C.O.P.S. to pursue future innovative programs for law enforcement survivors, officers still protecting our nation, and their families who know the dangers of the law enforcement profession. Unfortunately, C.O.P.S.’ membership will continue to grow beyond the 37,000 survivors that C.O.P.S. serves today.

The “Garden of Hope”


As a visitor walks down the “Road to Hope”, a left turn will take them into the “Garden of Hope”, a peaceful place for survivors to reflect on their fallen officers and leave a message on what C.O.P.S. has meant to them.


The floor of the courtyard will be comprised of 1,000 4 x 8 inch “pavers” that will carry a personal message of three lines with 20 characters.  The cost of each paver is $500.  Please understand that the earlier you purchase your paver, the closer it will be placed to the major focal point of the “Garden of Hope”, which will be “The C.O.P.S. Family Tree.”  Due to the continued requests, and the delay of start to construction, C.O.P.S. has extended the deadline for personalized tiles and pavers that help support the C.O.P.S. Capital Campaign.  The deadline date has yet to be determined.
