Glock Donates $50K to Concerns of Police Survivors

October 01, 2012  | 

 

Glock Inc. today donated $50,000 to the Concerns of Police Survivors (C.O.P.S.) at a ceremony at the company’s booth at the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) conference in San Diego. This marks the sixth consecutive year that GLOCK has donated to C.O.P.S., bringing total GLOCK contributions to the organization to $300,000.

Each year, nearly 160 officers are killed in the line of duty across the country. Their families, friends and co-workers are left to cope with the tragic loss. C.O.P.S. provides resources to help them rebuild their shattered lives. The nonprofit organization supports families with scholarships, child and teen camps, counseling and programs designed for spouses and parents, and support for the department in which the fallen officer served.

Glock National Sales Manager, Bob Radecki, presented the check to the organization. “Police officers across the country put their lives on the line every day to protect and serve their community. Glock recognizes that valiant dedication and is proud to support police officers and their loved ones,” said Radecki. “The C.O.P.S. organization is a class-act and one that does tremendous work for police families and we’re happy to support their effort.”
