Address1407 W Washington Boulevard Chicago, IL 60607home Email: ChicagoPoliceSurvivors@Gmail.comINTERNET
The Police Survivors are a group of current and retired Chicago Police Officers, who have been seriously injured or involved in traumatic incident.
The Police Survivor Group, unfortunately, has a place in society. As violence increases, so does the danger that every police officer faces everyday when he or she goes to work. We wish and hope that no other officer would have to endure the pain and terror that happens when an officer suffers a traumatic incident. When a traumatic incident happens to an officer, we will be there to provide as much help and support that we can…we know, we feel, and live with our memories and we want to make them easier for the next police officer.
CONCERNS OF POLICE SURVIVORS – COPS
AddressPO BOX 304 Tampico, IL 61283home
The Illinois Chapter of Concerns of Police Survivors (C.O.P.S.) is an organization dedicated to helping survivors of law enforcement officers who have died in the line of duty. We represent both the survivors of Illinois officers and the families of officers from across the country who call Illinois home. Tragically, over 1,000 officers have died in the line of duty in Illinois.
The National C.O.P.S. was organized in 1984 with 110 individual members. Today, C.O.P.S. membership is over 15,000 families. Our members include spouses, children, parents, siblings, in laws, significant others, and affected co-workers of officers who have died in the line of duty according to federal government criteria. C.O.P.S. is governed by a National Board of law enforcement survivors, and our programs and services are administered by the national office in Camdenton, Missouri. In addition to National Police Week activities, our annual retreats or â€œHands on Programsâ€ù offer various activities and counseling services for all our survivor groups.
The Illinois chapter received our charter in April of 2005 from the National C.O.P.S. organization. We meet quarterly throughout the state and at various social events throughout the year. Our chapter is able to help our families through the kindness of generous donors, annual fundraisers and a multitude of law enforcement agencies throughout Illinois. We welcome your support of our law enforcement heroes, their families, loved ones and co-workers!
