Police officers have a tough job. That has never been more evident than it is in today’s trying times. When an officer dies, it doesn’t just affect them. It affects their loved ones as well. To help those left behind, the organization Concerns of Police Survivors (COPS) offers some fantastic programs for free. But they need your help to fund these programs. That’s where the COPS National Golf Tournament 2020 comes in.

COPS National Golf Tournament 2020
The day starts with a breakfast to get you ready for the play ahead. After breakfast, golfers compete in a four-person scramble on the River and Mountain courses. You’ll love playing this Arnold Palmer designed course. After the final play through, all competitors gather together for a light lunch while the awards are passed out. Don’t miss out on the raffle. Prizes will also be awarded throughout. It’s going to be a lot of fun.
It costs $100 per person to play. Register online here. If you have a team of two or more, please fill out just one form in order to make sure everyone plays together. Individual players will be partnered up with other teams to fill in empty spots on the roster. The deadline to enter is July 22nd. So, make sure you sign up today.
To protect and serve can come at a high price. Unfortunately, 140 to 160 police officers lose their lives in the line of duty every year. They leave behind them families, friends, and co-workers who then must deal with this loss. COPS offers several hands-on programs, including a kids camp, Outwards Bound Adventure, and a siblings retreat. These all come free of charge to provide a friendly, safe environment to share their experiences with others who know exactly what they’ve been through. These programs also give them the skills and tools necessary to work through their grief.
