Georgia C.O.P.S.

Rebuilding Shattered Lives

Our Mission

C.O.P.S provides resources to assist in the rebuilding of the lives of surviving families of law enforcement officers killed in the LINE-OF-DUTY as determined by the Federal criteria. Furthermore, C.O.P.S provides training to law enforcement agencies on survivor victimization issues and educates the public of the need to support the law enforcement profession and its survivors.

The Georgia Chapter of Concerns of Police Survivors, Inc. (GA-C.O.P.S.) is a 501(c) (3) non-profit organization. We are a statewide chapter of an internal organization named Concerns of Police Survivors, Inc., founded in 1984, which has over 55 chapters in the United States and one in the United Kingdom.
The Georgia chapter was chartered on November 16, 1996 and is a statewide organization, registered with the Secretary of State’s Office. We are an all volunteer organization with no officers or members receiving any salary compensation. The chapter serves as a state wide support group for surviving families, friends and co-workers of law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty as determined by Federal criteria. Furthermore, GA C.O.P.S. is a resource to law enforcement agencies whenever they experience a line of duty death. The agencies are informed of the existence and the purpose of GA C.O.P.S in an effort for them to better assist their survivors and employees.
At the time of a line of duty death, the chapter sends flowers, is present at visitation services and attends the funerals of the officer(s). Line of duty death packages consisting of where and how to submit and apply for survivor benefits, grief material and programs sponsored by C.O.P.S. is mailed to the spouse, or beneficiary and the agency that lost the officer.
