C.O.P.S. Parents Retreat
October 22 - October 25
C.O.P.S. is moving forward with planning for the Hands-On Programs with hopes these events will take place in person in 2021. However, we continue to closely monitor restrictions due to COVID-19 that would impact retreats. Any decisions to cancel in-person events will be communicated to the C.O.P.S. membership. If you purchase airline tickets for any event, you should consider obtaining travel insurance.
C.O.P.S. Parents Retreat is planned for surviving parents and step-parents of law enforcement officers who died in the line of duty, as determined by C.O.P.S. criteria. Couples as well as single parents are encouraged to attend. Other relatives and friends are not eligible to attend.
Losing a child can be the most devastating thing for a parent to experience, especially in a sudden, traumatic and often violent death. After the loss of their officer, surviving parents must deal with their personal grief as well as supporting other family members along their grief journey.
C.O.P.S. Parents Retreat will help you resolve your individual and family grief issues through attending grief seminar sessions specifically designed for your needs, participating in challenging and fun outdoor activities and receiving 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.
