Extreme Home Makeover Episode Features Family of Fallen Officer

December 04, 2009  | 

On October 17, 2009, ABC's popular television series, Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, travelled to Woodlawn, Tenn., to give widow Trina Scott and her three daughters the good news that their trouble-ridden home would be rebuilt, according to Concerns of Police Survivors (C.O.P.S.).

Trina Scott lost her husband, Clarksville (Tenn.) PD Patrolman David Scott, on June 7, 2002, in an automobile accident while pursuing robbery suspects. Trina devotes her free time to C.O.P.S. and has served as the East and Middle Tennessee C.O.P.S. Chapter President since 2003. "At C.O.P.S. events, we can laugh and cry and talk openly about our grief," she says. "When we are with other survivors, we know we're with family....our C.O.P.S. family," Trina said of the C.O.P.S. organization.

Hundreds of construction workers and volunteers worked tirelessly around the clock for the big reveal of the Scott Family's new home on October 23, 2009. Among those volunteers were 63 survivors from the C.O.P.S. family.

C.O.P.S. members drove from Georgia, Kentucky, Illinois, Indiana, Maryland, Missouri, New Jersey, North Carolina, Ohio and Tennessee to share this joyous event with the Scott Family.

The episode featuring the Scott Family will air Sunday, December 6, on ABC. Check your local listing for times.
