'Back the Blue' is a public awareness campaign designed and dedicated to displaying public support for law enforcement throughout the United States. The Iowa Chapter is "Iowa Concerns of Police Survivors (COPS)". They assist surviving families and affected co-workers of law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty.
BIKEIOWA is supporting Iowa C.O.P.S. with the #backtheblue collection. We will donate $15 from each 'Back the Blue' jersey/crew shirt sold, and $5 from every 'Back the Blue' cycling cap sold to Iowa C.O.P.S.
Iowa Concerns of Police Survivors, 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 killed in the line of duty as determined by Federal criteria. Iowa C.O.P.S. provides training to law enforcement agencies on survivor victimization issues and educates the public of the need to provide ongoing support the law enforcement profession and its survivors.
All donations made to Iowa C.O.P.S. stays in Iowa to support Iowa survivors. Monies are used to support such activities as sending families to National Police Week in Washington, DC, the funeral response team, cost of training, and other related activities.
