Concerns of Police Survivors 2010 Hands-On Programs E-mail


Every year Concerns of Police Survivors (C.O.P.S.) hosts a week-long camp for children ages 6-14, a wilderness experience for teens ages 15-20, and weekend retreats for adult children, siblings, spouses, in-laws, and parents of law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty. In fall of 2010, C.O.P.S. will host an inaugural affected co-workers retreat.

"C.O.P.S retreats help you see that life can get better and that moving on does not mean forgetting. C.O.P.S understands the sacrifice your officer went through and helps you keep their memory alive." - Melanie Teagan, surviving spouse of Lt. Delmar Teagan, Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, End of Watch 4/13/2007

In 2009, 649 survivors attended C.O.P.S. Hands-On Programs. The average cost was $592 per person. All programs provided to the survivors by C.O.P.S. are free of charge; the price paid is already too high.

Recognize the Signs of Seizures E-mail

Epilepsy Foundation

Epilepsy is a serious neurological disorder that can develop at any time in life, but there is a particular susceptibility in young children and the elderly. The condition produces seizures, which can range from a momentary disruption of the senses to short periods of unconsciousness or staring spells to convulsions.

A seizure happens when a brief, strong surge of electrical activity affects part or all of the brain. When a person has two or more unprovoked seizures, they are considered to have epilepsy. Epilepsy affects more than three million people in the United States and 50 million people worldwide; yet, many people do not recognize the signs of a seizure.

Many times, the symptoms are misinterpreted as alcoholic or drug-induced intoxication. Some epilepsy symptoms have even been known to confuse law enforcement officers, who may mistake someone experiencing a seizure or post-seizure behaviors for mentally ill or criminal behavior.

Testimonial of Mike Kampen—a sergeant working for a large California law enforcement agency, and a TUI University future graduate (class of 2010) E-mail


Now as I get close to finishing my degree in Business Administration, I appreciate TUI more than ever, and I would like to share with you my thoughts and experience.

TUI University is a valuable resource for federal, local and military police officers. For me and many others, TUI provides an opportunity to pursue our educational goals. I would like to give you an update on my progress.

I have been attending TUI University for several years. I am working on my fully online B.S.B.A. With my career, family and other commitments, I am not sure I could advance my education any other way. Prior to finding TUI, I had completed many college courses but seemed to make little progress. The staff at TUI changed that. They were able to analyze all of the course work I had taken and my professional training and recommend a realistic approach to accomplishing my goal of earning a degree.

Written by Richard C. Paddock, AOL News   
SAN JOSE, Calif. (May 17) - Each day when San Jose police officer William Pender goes to work, he straps on his badge, gun, radio and Taser. And then he attaches a small video camera to his left ear.

The camera is part of a test program. Throughout Pender's shift, it records whatever is in front of him. With the push of a button, he can save the video and audio of his interactions with citizens, suspects and fellow officers. It is the way of the future, he points out.

"It's actually really cool," he says. "You can look from my point of view. What I see, the camera sees."

Pender, a 15-year veteran, is one of 18 San Jose police officers participating in a pilot program to test the head cameras. Called the Taser Axon, the camera is made by Taser International, which also makes Taser electroshock guns.
