The Northern California Chapter of Concerns of Police Survivors (C.O.P.S.) was recently awarded the 2021 Chapter of the Year by the C.O.P.S. National Office. The NorCal Chapter furthered the mission of C.O.P.S., rebuilding shattered lives of families and co-workers of officers who gave their lives in the line of duty, despite the challenges of the pandemic.
C.O.P.S. has 55 chapters throughout the United States, including three in California (Northern, Central and Southern). C.O.P.S. programs for survivors include the National Police Survivors’ Conference held each May during National Police Week; scholarships; peer support at the national, state and local levels; C.O.P.S. Kids counseling reimbursement program; C.O.P.S. Kids Summer Camp; C.O.P.S. Teens Outward Bound Adventure for young adults; special retreats for spouses, parents, siblings, adult children, extended family and co-workers; trial and parole support; and other assistance programs.
All of the California chapters are grateful for PORAC’s support! For more information about C.O.P.S., please visit concernsofpolicesurvivors.org or email NorCal Chapter President Matt Bloesch at firstname.lastname@example.org.
