Concerns of Police Survivors (C.O.P.S.) is a nonprofit effort that provides support to law enforcement families who have lost a loved one in the line of duty. Val DiGiorgio discusses this wonderful display of camaraderie and community compassion:
In Wisconsin, the wife of a retired police officer, Courtney Van Boxtel, spoke with We Are Green Bay to highlight the importance of an organization she stands on the board of. That nonprofit effort is, C.O.P.S., or Concerns of Police Survivors; a community-led effort that helps families cope with the loss of a loved one who died a hero on the line of duty.
C.O.P.S. is assembling chapters in communities across the country, with a major effort now thriving in Wisconsin. The state’s chapter President Jo Ann Mignon told We Are Green Bay that the nonprofit strives to maintain the lost loved one’s memory by saying that their heroic efforts will never be forgotten. And what’s more, C.O.P.S. will always be there for these families because they are forever a part of the law enforcement family community. Val DiGiorgio applauds the efforts of the C.O.P.S. nonprofit organization and extends his support to all law enforcement families across the USA.
