The Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 127F-Amtrak Police, is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, which hosts the Krawlin’ For C.O.P.S. Event. In December 2013, we had a vision to organize an Off-Road Charity Event to support local charitable agencies and provide aid to support Law Enforcement Officers who have paid the ultimate sacrifice and lost their lives in the line of duty, and to provide support for their families in times of need. The first annual event was held on May 21, 2014.
Krawlin’ For C.O.P.S. is an offroad charity event which is organized by the members from the FOP Lodge 127F-Amtrak Police out of Baltimore, Maryland. Krawlin’ For C.O.P.S. raises money for the Maryland and Pennsylvania Chapters of Concerns of Police Survivors (C.O.P.S.) which provides money and services to families of Police officers who have lost their lives in the line of duty.
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. C.O.P.S. provides resources to assist in the rebuilding of the lives of surviving families and affected co-workers of law enforcement officers who have died in the line of duty as determined by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), Public Safety Officers’ Benefit (PSOB), National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund Officers’ Memorial Fund (MLEOMF) or Fraternal Order of Police (FOP) 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.
