Cookbook Project!

Enter your recipe and help us get our first Cookbook published! It should be totally amazing!


North Carolina C.O.P.S. is now collecting recipes for the first edition of the new "NC Law Enforcement Collection" cookbook. This cookbook will be a way to honor and share the memories of our officers by putting a personal touch to something we must do every day. Each recipe submitted can be personalized with a tribute to the officer whether s/he served (or is STILL serving) in North Carolina or in another state but had(has) family members that reside here. Please show your support for our Law Enforcement Community by submitting a recipe or two that are favorites of your hero. Proceeds from the sales of the finished cookbook will be used to assist family and co-workers of NC fallen officers attend seminars, retreats and other programs designed to help with the healing process after a loss.

About C.O.P.S.

The national group—Concerns of Police Survivors, Inc. (C.O.P.S. or COPS)— provides resources to assist in the rebuilding of the lives of surviving families and affected co-workers of law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty as determined by federal criteria. COPS was organized in 1984 with 110 individual members. Today COPS membership is over 15,000 families. Members include spouses, children, parents, siblings, significant others, and affected co-workers of officers killed in the line of duty according to Federal government criteria.  COPS is governed by a National Board of law enforcement survivors.

 All programs and services are administered by the National Office in Camdenton, Missouri. Chapters function in several states at the grass-roots level. COPS also provides training to law enforcement agencies on survivor victimization issues and educates the public of the need to support the law enforcement profession and its survivors.

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.  COPS provides resources to help them rebuild their shattered lives.  There is no membership fee to join COPS, for the price paid is already too high. 

Survivor Benefits

There are both national benefits and state benefits available to survivors. Please refer to our Resources page for more information.
