Welcome to MI-C.O.P.S

Reaching out to survivors and co-workers, Michigan Concerns of Police Survivors (MI-C.O.P.S.), an all volunteer organization, is a chapter of Concerns of Police Survivors. We are a 501(c)(3) charitable organization whose sole purpose is to provide support to surviving law enforcement families and co-workers in rebuilding their lives after the traumatic and life-changing experience of losing an officer in the line of duty. Concerns of Police Survivors (C.O.P.S.) is a national, non-profit organization formed in Washington, D.C. in 1984. C.O.P.S. held its first National Police Survivors seminar the following year with 100 attendees. Now over 10,000 survivor families and co-workers are served by C.O.P.S. nationally. MI-C.O.P.S. was organized in 1988 after 12 line of duty deaths occurred the previous year and the need for a local chapter to offer support was identified as a priority for the families and co-workers. Our chapter is one of over 50 C.O.P.S. chapters throughout the country. We have members throughout the state. It does not matter if your officer was killed in the line of duty in Michigan or elsewhere, MI-C.O.P.S. is here to offer you help. Survivors and co-workers will find information in the website that will get them connected to services, support programs, camps, retreats, activities and events. Law enforcement agencies can connect to information on MI-C.O.P.S. assistance with a line of duty death, training programs, co-workers' retreat and C.O.P.S. highly respected program, "Traumas of Law Enforcement." Please use the web site. There is information on contacting MI-C.O.P.S. by phone, email and regular mail. Let us know about memorials, events and activities that we can post to the website. And, let us know if there is something that we can do to improve the web site as well. We memorialize those we have known and loved. We assist others in beginning their journey and honor and support the travel that others have been on for many years. We are with you and support you along this road.
