C.O.P.S. Siblings Retreat is planned for surviving siblings 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. Couples, as well as individual Siblings, are encouraged to attend.
- *Domestic Partner is defined as a long term committed legal or interpersonal relationship between two individuals who live together and share a common domestic life (i.e., not just a boy/girlfriend).
On occasion, surviving siblings have been referred to as the forgotten ones, due to putting their grief aside to help the surviving parents, spouses, and children. Siblings attending this program find relief in having an outlet to express themselves with others who know how they feel.
C.O.P.S. Siblings 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.
