Welcome to Montana COPS!


Thin Blue Line Basket

“The Thin Blue Line” is an art piece created by Richard Charlson of Carter, MT. This piece is dedicated to all law enforcement officers who put their lives on the line each day for all of us. This is a segmented woven illusion with wenge and maple. It is beaded, indexed, burned and dyed with India ink. 

“The Thin Blue Line” was generously donated to us to be raffled off with all proceeds will go to MT COPS! Raffle tickets are $5.00 each. The drawing will be held during a picnic for MT COPS on July 23rd (do not need to be present to win). 

Tickets can be purchased by contacting us at info@montanacops.org or using the PayPal link on the right side of this page (under “Purpose” be sure to reference “Thin Blue Line Raffle Tickets”).


Concerns of Police Survivors, Inc. provides resources to assist in the rebuilding of the lives of surviving families and affected co-workers of law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty as determined by Federal criteria. Furthermore, C.O.P.S. provides training to law enforcement agencies on survivor victimization issues and educates the public of the need to support the law enforcement profession and its survivors.


Each year between 140 and 160 officers are killed in the line of duty and their families and co-workers are left to cope with the tragic loss. C.O.P.S. provides resources to help them rebuild their shattered lives. There is no membership fee to join C.O.P.S. for the price paid is already too high. Montana C.O.P.S. is committed to providing the surviving families and co-workers of fallen law enforcement officers the support of others who have come before them. Being able to share our experiences and offer a “hand up” through the grieving journey is what peer support is all about. Being able to share our experiences with others who have gone before us gives us the hope that we, too, can survive. That is the mission of C.O.P.S.
