Each year, between 140 and 160 officers are killed nationally in the line of duty and their families and co-workers are left to cope with the tragic loss. The national and local chapters of C.O.P.S. provide resources to help them rebuild their shattered lives. There is no membership fee to join C.O.P.S. – the price paid is already too high.
The New England Chapter of C.O.P.S. began its mission in July, 1995. C.O.P.S. as an organization DOES NOT solicit money by telephone. If you ever get a call by any organization by that name (which has been happening) it is not the Concerns of Police Survivors on the national or local level.
Aside from our occasional fundraisers (like our fun annual golf tournament), we rely on donations from supportive organizations, businesses and individuals. We are a tax exempt 501(c)(3) charity. All of our board members are volunteers and survivors—parents, spouses, co-workers, and others. Unlike some organizations, we have very low administrative costs and there are no salary costs.
If you would like to donate, you can send to the mailing address listed below – any amount is appreciated. Your check can be made out to The New England Chapter of Concerns of Police Survivors.
