The Texas Municipal Police Association recently sponsored a 40 hour, hands on COPLINE Volunteer Training session at their headquarters in Austin, Texas.
This video shows the faces of the officers COPLINE honored by running for them during the 2017 New Year’s Run for the Call 5k. Each one of the officers featured wore the badge with honor.
It's 7am here in Israel. It's now midnight NYE in the East coast.
I'm running for all those that serve us and risk their lives; I'm running for those that are no longer with us; I'm running for those who are physically intact, but have been hit by the invisible bullet of psychological trauma.
I wish us all a safe and happy New year.
LTC Yotam Dagan

Copline is holding its next training in San Diego, California from 12/6-12/10/17. Training is 40 hours. All interested retirees please fill out an application on http://www.copline.org/resources.html. All applicants will be vetted before they are asked to the training. Successful completion of the training will allow volunteer listeners to begin taking calls. All shifts are 12 hours and can be transferred to a cellphone, home phone or designed number the volunteer provides. Each volunteer must take 1 shift per month and commit to a year. Please contact us with any questions.
"Location and details will be given to vetted volunteers attending training".
We will be updating with more specifics within the next couple of weeks.
Copline will be presenting a Wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown on 11/12 at 4:15pm sharp. We will be honoring those that have worn both uniforms as many of our law Enforcement Officers have. We would love to share this special event with all Copline supporters and those that secure our borders both domestically and abroad.
On 10/14 at 9am is the 5k Run for the Badge in Washington DC which benefits the law enforcement officers memorial. Copline has put in a team and would love to have others join us, either in DC or virtually. Please go to http://support.nleomf.org/site/PageNavigator/rftb_run_details.html.
We have chosen New Year’s Eve to remind us that police officers all over the country are working and not with their families. We honor them and all those that have worn the badge with respect and dignity by starting the New Year healthy, sober and safe. We remember that no matter how bad things are, there can be a new beginning.
