Helping the law enforcement family reduce stress
Cop Care is on a mission: We offer experience in the founding and training of volunteer peer support teams. We rely on our own fundraising to be able to offer consultation and training at low cost to your departments. The past few years have increased the attacks on the coping skills of all police officers and Cop Care brings proactive methods that reduce stress, organize effective training which guards against premature retirement and lowers the chance of the worst situation-a decision for suicide. Send us an email with contact information. Let our mission come to your command staff and we will convince them of what we already know: Cops can work wonders and every department has brothers and sisters who will volunteer to be trained. Help save our police families!! Cop Care 20.org
