|STREAMLIGHT® SPONSORS C.O.P.S. PROGRAMS FOR 14TH YEAR|
Company Also Donates Proceeds from Product Sales to Concerns of Police Survivors. Streamlight®, Inc., a leading provider of high-performance lighting and weapon light/laser sighting devices for the law enforcement market, is marking its 14th year as a sponsor for Concerns of Police Survivors (C.O.P.S.), contributing to ongoing survivor programs and activities.
The company’s contribution was used to help fund C.O.P.S. observances during National Police Week, May 12-18, in Washington, D.C., an annual event honoring fallen officers and their families. This year, Streamlight again served as a major sponsor of the organization’s annual survivors’ luncheon, as well as a reception for participants in the Law Enforcement United’s “Road to Hope” memorial bicycle ride. The ride honors fallen law enforcement heroes and supports their survivors.
“As the lighting tools brand of choice by law enforcement professionals who put their trust in our products in the line of duty, we are deeply committed to helping C.O.P.S. support survivors of fallen officers,” said Streamlight President and Chief Executive Officer Ray Sharrah. “We are proud to be a part of C.O.P.S. programs that help the families of fallen officers rebuild their lives.”
Streamlight’s commitment also extends to the organization’s programs throughout the year. Among them are C.O.P.S. Kids 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.
Streamlight also is the lead sponsor of the Annual C.O.P.S. Walk, and a gold sponsor of the C.O.P.S. Walk Southwest. Both 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.
