PEORIA, Ariz. – In their continuing effort to assist the families of fallen officers, Apex Tactical Specialties announces new Thin Blue Line trigger models for the Walther PPQ and the Smith & Wesson M&P Shield 45. Apex established the Thin Blue Line Series to raise money for Concerns of Police Survivors (C.O.P.S.) with 25% from each sale going to the organization. To date Apex has raised $30,000 for C.O.P.S.

The Thin Blue Line Series from Apex, which was introduced on October 31, 2016, includes triggers for the Smith & Wesson M&P, the M&P Shield, Glock model pistols and now the M&P Shield 45 and Walther PPQ. The new models are the:

Apex Action Enhancement Trigger for M&P Shield 45 - Thin Blue Line Series

Apex Action Enhancement Trigger & Duty/Carry Kit for M&P Shield 45 - Thin Blue Line Series

Apex Walther PPQ Forward Set Trigger & Apex Tuned Trigger Bar - Thin Blue Line Series

Each year, between 140 and 160 officers die in the line of duty, and their families and co-workers are left to cope with the tragic loss. Organized in 1984, C.O.P.S. is a nationally recognized and highly respected law enforcement support organization that offers programs for survivors, including the National Police Survivors' Conference, which is held each May during National Police Week.

C.O.P.S. also offers scholarships, peer-support at the national, state, and local levels; the "C.O.P.S. Kids" counseling reimbursement program; and the "C.O.P.S. Kids" Summer Camp. "C.O.P.S. Teens” offers an Outward Bound experience for young adults. C.O.P.S. also sponsors special retreats for spouses, parents, siblings, adult children, extended family, fiancés/significant others, and co-workers. Trial and parole support, as well as other assistance programs, are also available.
