Apex Donates $75,000 To C.O.P.S.
PEORIA, Ariz., – Apex Tactical Specialties is proud to announce that in the first year since introduction of the Thin Blue Line Series of triggers Apex has donated $75,000 to Concerns of Police Survivors (C.O.P.S.).
Apex raised the funds through the sale of the Thin Blue Line Series of triggers which were introduced on October 31, 2016. Thin Blue Line versions of popular Apex triggers include those for the Smith & Wesson M&P, M&P Shield, Glock and Walther PPQ pistols, with additional models scheduled for release later this year. The company dedicates 25% of each sale to Concerns of Police Survivors , a national law enforcement support organization.
“Thanks to the continued support from our customers for our Thin Blue Line Series, Apex is very pleased to announce that our contribution to Concerns of Police Survivors has now reached $75,000,” said Scott Folk, COO of Apex.
“C.O.P.S. thanks Apex Tactical for not only their exceptional product created to honor the thin blue line of law enforcement, but for their generous support of law enforcement survivors. Apex Tactical is truly a company who honors our nation's heroes and never forgets those left behind,” said Dianne Bernhard, executive director of C.O.P.S.
C.O.P.S., a nationally recognized and highly respected law enforcement support organization, 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 and 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.
Concerns of Police Survivors is a nationwide not-for-profit organization with 53 Chapters across the country. Members of C.O.P.S. are always prepared to help survivors when they need it, where they need it. The organization’s mission has always been to “rebuild shattered lives” of the survivors. C.O.P.S. has a membership comprised of more than 47,000 people nationwide who have identified themselves as survivors nationwide. Unfortunately, that membership continues to grow as an average of 140-160 law enforcement officers have died in the line of duty every year.
