At National Police Week on May 14th and 16th, children, step-children and siblings who have lost a parent or sibling to a line-of-duty death can participate in special activities. Children and Siblings of the fallen officer must be pre-registered to attend these programs. There is no on-site registration. Once registered, parents/guardians of the attendee will receive detailed information on the program.

This program will give attendees the opportunity to attend grief counseling sessions designed for their needs, as well as age-appropriate fun and social activities. This program is held off-site at local law enforcement academies. (Additional information for the C.O.P.S. Kids/Teens activities will be sent to the parent/guardian along with a request for additional paperwork on each child. Children must be pre-registered and must attend the C.O.P.S.
