Concerns of Police Survivors is a non-profit organization that helps rebuild the lives of families who lost a loved one in the line of duty.

Concerns of Police Survivors is a non-profit organization that provides programs and support to families and co-workers of offices killed in the line of duty. I became a part of C.O.P.S. on February 9, 2005. My father Sergeant Michael A. Scarbrough, of the Wayne County Airport Authority, was killed in an automobile accident while traveling to training. His car hit a patch of black ice spinning out of control and hit a telephone pole on his side. He worked with the department for 17 years.

I became involved with C.O.P.S. in the summer of 2005. I was 13 years old when I attended C.O.P.S. Kids Camp in Wisconsin with my 10-year-old twin brothers and mom. This was a life-changing experience. For the first time I was able to connect with other children who had lost their parent in the line of duty. We were able to share stories and understand each other. I graduated C.O.P.S. Kids Camp in 2006 and went on to attend three years of Outward Bound, a C.O.P.S. Hands-On Program for 15-20 year old children. I white water rafted down Cataract Canyon for two years and mountain climbed in Leadville, Colorado for one year. On these trips I challenged myself to do things that I never thought were possible. I gained leadership skills, confidence and self-esteem. This summer I attended my first C.O.P.S. Adult Children’s Retreat in Potosi, Missouri and again felt comfort and support from other survivors.

Concerns of Police Survivors provides all of these programs to the survivors for FREE. The cost for the Hands-On programs is raised through grants, fundraisers and donations. In 2007, I held a fundraiser in honor of my father Sergeant Michael A. Scarbrough. We were able to raise $6,000 to assist with all that C.O.P.S. does. That is why I decided to participate in the C.O.P.S. Walk 2011.

Please help support C.O.P.S. by sponsoring me on my walk. I will be walking 25 miles in two days. My goal is to raise $1,500. This money will help send children to C.O.P.S. Kids Camp, Outward Bound, and Adult Children’s Retreat.
