C.O.P.S. Hits $1 Million Mark for Scholarships to Police Survivors E-mail


Concerns of Police Survivors (C.O.P.S.) is both proud and honored to announce the organization has just surpassed the $1 million mark in scholarships given to surviving spouses and children of fallen law enforcement officers.

Concerns of Police Survivors believes that higher education for any child should not be put in jeopardy or disrupted because of the unforeseen tragedy that has befallen the family and that educating a surviving spouse only ensures that the family will be better off financially.

Since 1994, when the scholarship program was initiated, C.O.P.S. has given $1,009,110 in scholarships to 296 survivors of fallen officers in 46 states and territories who do not receive tuition-free education as a state death benefit. Additionally, C.O.P.S. provides scholarships to survivors who may no longer meet their state eligibility for assistance. These scholarships are not a loan and no repayment is necessary. C.O.P.S. does not charge for any of the programs or services that it provides to the more than 15,000 surviving family members; the families have already paid a high enough price.

Editorial: TASER power comes with responsibility E-mail

Dramatically speaking, the police account of a lunchtime confrontation with a violent, P-addled motorist in Waitemata last year leaves something to be desired: "I presented the Taser at the offender and laser-painted him, explaining that he would have 50,000 volts passed through him if he did not comply," the report on the incident reads.

Either the unidentified author speaks to violent suspects in the manner of a science teacher explaining the theory of relativity, or he has chosen to spare his audience the actual language used. With his matter-of-fact delivery, the author also fails to convey the drama of the situation. Trouble began when a man threatened officers with a wheel brace, continued with a chase in which one police car was side-swiped, another was rammed from behind and a third was reversed into, and concluded only when the offender was shot with a 50,000-volt stun gun.

But as an illustration of the benefits of equipping police with stun guns, there could be no better example. Not only has the risk to police and public been minimised, so has risk to the offender - he has been subdued without lasting harm.
