Streamlight Inc., a leading provider of high-performance lighting and weapon light/laser sighting devices for law enforcement, renewed its sponsorship of Concerns of Police Survivors (C.O.P.S.), which provides support to the families and co-workers of fallen officers. The company’s contribution for 2015 totaled $130,500.
Streamlight donated $15,500 in proceeds from recent sales of its Blue Nano Light to the organization. The company earmarks $1.00 from the sale of each specially marked keychain light to C.O.P.S.
Streamlight’s support traditionally helps to underwrite ongoing programs and activities for survivors of fallen officers. This year, Streamlight again served as a major sponsor of the organization’s survivors’ luncheon, part of the annual C.O.P.S. observances during National Police Week, May 10-16, in Washington, D.C.
Streamlight’s commitment also extends to the organization’s programs throughout the year, including C.O.P.S. Kids Camp, C.O.P.S. Young Adults Camp and C.O.P.S. Outward Bound, as well as hands-on retreats for siblings, surviving spouses, parents, adult children, in-laws, and significant others. Streamlight is the lead sponsor of the Affected Co-Workers Retreat and the new Affected Co-Workers for Couples Retreat.
“For more than 15 years, Streamlight has sponsored C.O.P.S out of a deep commitment to the law enforcement community,” said Streamlight President and Chief Executive Officer Ray Sharrah. “Because so many law enforcement professionals put their trust in our products in the line of duty, we wanted to give something back to the profession. We’re proud to support the organization’s invaluable work in helping the families and colleagues of fallen officers rebuild their lives.”
In recognition of its long-time support, Streamlight last year was inducted into the C.O.P.S “Hall of Fame” as a major corporate sponsor.
Streamlight also is the lead sponsor of the Annual C.O.P.S. Walk Harper’s Ferry, and a gold sponsor of the C.O.P.S. Walk Southwest and the C.O.P.S. Walk St. Louis. The walks bring together survivors, friends and members of the law enforcement community and challenge them to walk 25 miles in two days to support C.O.P.S. and its mission.
The company also is a sponsor of Law Enforcement United, which helps to raise money for C.O.P.S. programs through programs like its recent “The Road to Hope” memorial bicycle ride.
