C.O.P.S. Kids/Teen Program at National Police Week


At National Police Week each May, children and siblings who have lost a parent or sibling to a line-of-duty death can participate in special activities.  Fallen officers’ children/step-children and siblings, in kindergarten through 12th grade, will have the opportunity to attend grief counseling sessions, as well as age-appropriate fun and social activities.  The program is held off-site at local and federal law enforcement academies.


For many kids, this is the first time they have made contact with peers - other kids who have gone through the same thing they have - the loss of a loved one to line-of-duty death.  A dedicated staff of professionals and volunteers assess the children's emotional well-being, listen and guide them through any issues they wish to talk about, while participating in a variety of fun activities.  Results of the emotional assessments are provided to parents after National Police Week so that, if needed, additional counseling can be obtained at home.
