C.O.P.S. Siblings Retreat is planned for surviving siblings and their spouse/domestic partner (21 years or older) of law enforcement officers who died in the line of duty, as determined by C.O.P.S. criteria. Other relatives and friends are not eligible to attend.
On occasion surviving siblings have been referred to as the forgotten ones, due to putting their grief aside to help the surviving parents, spouses and children. Siblings that attend this program find relief in having an outlet to express themselves with others who know how they feel. C.O.P.S. Siblings Retreat will give you the opportunity to attend grief seminar sessions specifically designed for your needs, participate in challenging and fun outdoor activities and receive support from peers who truly understand. It is our goal for you to leave the retreat feeling relaxed, with a continuing support system and a tremendous sense of personal growth and self-awareness for the future.
