Concerns of Police Survivors

https://www.concernsofpolicesurvivors.org/

Our Mission:  Rebuilding shattered lives of survivors and co-workers affected by line-of-duty deaths. Each year, between 140 and 160 officers are killed in the line of duty and their families and co-workers are left to cope with the tragic loss.  C.O.P.S. provides resources to help them rebuild their shattered lives.  There is no membership fee to join C.O.P.S., for the price paid is already too high.

NALES - National Alliance for Law Enforcement Support

https://nalestough.org/

NALES is dedicated to providing resources and emotional support to law enforcement families, and serving as a positive voice for law enforcement in the community. 

 

As the wife of a police sergeant in Southern California, Rose Winick found herself in need of advice and support she could only get from other police wives. She decided to form her own support system by starting an online support forum in 2006. That forum quickly grew to over 200 members from across the nation, Canada, England, and Australia.

 

Over the years, NALES received numerous requests for financial support and other resources from police families and law enforcement agencies. Rose and her all-volunteer staff were called into action and NALES became a non-profit in 2007, dedicated to helping police families across the country.
