Camdenton, MO -- Law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty in 2000 will be remembered and the families they left behind will be honored during National Police Week 2001 activities in Washington, DC, May 13-17.
Since 1985, Concerns of Police Survivors (COPS) has sponsored the National Police Survivors' Seminars as part of National Police Week activities to help those surviving familes begin rebuilding their lives.
