Normally, the following wording is used to explain what happens at your retreat. However, the 2020 Extended Family Retreat will be virtual.

C.O.P.S. Extended Family Retreat is planned for surviving extended family members and their spouse/domestic partner (21 years or older) of law enforcement officers who died in the line of duty, as determined by C.O.P.S. criteria.  Eligible family members include: grandparents, aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins and in-laws.  Other relatives and friends are not eligible to attend.

After the loss of their officer, extended family members typically assist the immediate family members with their grief and want to know how to better help them.  These subjects are addressed as well as how to handle their own grief.  This retreat would also be fitting for non-traditional families where an officer may have been raised by someone other than their biological parents. 

C.O.P.S. Extended Family Retreat will give you the opportunity to attend grief seminar sessions specifically designed for your needs, participate in challenging and fun outdoor activities and receive support from peers who truly understand.  It is our goal for you to leave the retreat feeling relaxed, with a continuing support system and a tremendous sense of personal growth and self-awareness for the future.”
