Each year, Concerns of Police Survivors (C.O.P.S.) educates America’s law enforcement agencies on how to appropriately respond to officers and their families affected by line-of-duty traumas through the “Traumas of Law Enforcement” trainings. The Bureau of Justice
Assistance, Office of Justice Programs, U.S. Department of Justice,
has provided funding for the 2013 “Traumas of Law Enforcement”
trainings. At these trainings, instructors will present information
that is vitally important to America’s law enforcement agencies
regarding appropriate response to line-of-duty death, disability, critical incidents, and police suicide. The training is presented over three days and includes 21-hours of class time. In its 18th year, the “Traumas of Law Enforcement” has been said to be “the best training I have taken in my entire law enforcement career” by many who have attended.
