The Maryland Chapter of Concerns of Police Survivors is a statewide non-profit organization providing programs and services for the survivors of law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty in the state of Maryland according to Federal and State government criteria.

Our Mission

Rebuilding shattered lives of survivors and co-workers affected by line of duty deaths through partnerships with law enforcement and the community.

We are glad you are here- if you are new to this organization, let us first say we are sorry you had to find out about us. If you are a Law Enforcement Officer or the general public wanting to know more, then you are in the right place.

The Maryland Chapter Board of C.O.P.S. has recently had some changes and we would like to introduce ourselves to each of you. Please know that our goal is to continue to provide support to every survivor here in Maryland- C.O.P.S. was founded in 1984, as a Peer Support organization and that is our goal for all survivors to feel like they are being listened to and never forgotten. We promise to never forget our fallen officers and we will do the same in caring for our survivors.
