Streamlight has renewed its sponsorship of Concerns of Police Survivors (C.O.P.S.) for the 20th year in a row. In 2019, the company’s contribution to the non-profit organization totaled $121,000—including $8,700 in proceeds from recent sales of its Blue Nano Light and Blue Siege AA lantern—that help underwrite ongoing programs and activities for survivors of fallen officers.
“Streamlight could not be more proud to support C.O.P.S.’ important work helping survivors of the fallen rebuild their lives,” said Streamlight President and Chief Executive Officer Ray Sharrah. “As the lighting tool brand of choice by first responders, we are committed to ‘giving back’ to the law enforcement community. We are very proud to assist this fine organization.”
The company also hosted its 5th annual C.O.P.S. 5K/Fun Walk last month, at Lower Perkiomen Valley Park Trail in Oaks, PA, near the firm’s headquarters. Participants in the run included 134 employees and associates, who raised more than $4,000 during the event.
Streamlight’s support helped to fund C.O.P.S. activities in Washington, D.C., leading up to National Police Week in May. As part of the annual C.O.P.S. observance, which honors fallen officers and their families, Streamlight once again served as a major sponsor of the organization’s annual survivor’s luncheon. The company was also a sponsor of the Blue Honor Gala, celebrating the 35th anniversary of C.O.P.S. and the 10th anniversary of Law Enforcement United, an organization that also commemorates fallen officers.
The legendary lighting company’s commitment also extends to the organization’s programs throughout the year, including 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 and Affected Couples of Co-Workers Retreats. Streamlight earmarks $1 from the sale of each Blue Nano light to C.O.P.S.
