We have your 6, You are not alone

At Chaplains and Heroes, we understand the crucial role resilience plays in the performance and well-being of law enforcement professionals. When faced with stressors beyond our capacity, finding an appropriate solution can be daunting. Rest assured, we have done the groundwork for you. These helplines are at your disposal. We recommend reaching out to crisis lines tailored to Law Enforcement culture or staffed by Law Enforcement peers, ensuring you connect with someone who truly comprehends your experiences and possesses suitable resources. You have the right to persistently call until you find the person who suits your needs and situation. If necessary, seek medical attention if you are feeling suicidal or overwhelmed.

Concerns of Police Survivors (C.O.P.S.)
614-446-0915
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. Today, C.O.P.S. membership is over 51,000 survivors. Survivors include spouses, children, parents, siblings, significant others, and co-workers of officers who have died in the line of duty according to Federal government criteria. C.O.P.S. knows that a survivor's level of distress is directly affected by the agency's response to the tragedy. C.O.P.S., therefore, offers training and assistance to law enforcement agencies nationwide on how to respond to the tragic loss of a member of the law enforcement profession. C.O.P.S. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. C.O.P.S. programs and services are funded by grants and donations.
