Guns Apex Thin Blue Line Series Released to Support of C.O.P.S. Industry News November 17, 2016 Join the Conversation Peoria, AZ based Apex Tactical Specialties recently announced the release of a special trigger series. You'll want know about this if you're on the job (or support those who are). The sale of the new triggers will support Concerns of Police Survivors. Here’s what they told us. Apex Thin Blue Line Series Randy Lee and Scott Folk, the owners of Apex Tactical Specialties, are proud to announce the release of a special series of triggers specifically offered to raise money for the families of police officers who have died in the line of duty. With the sale of each trigger in the new Thin Blue Line Series, available only from Apex Tactical, Apex will donate 25% of each sale to Concerns of Police Survivors (C.O.P.S.), the leading national organization supporting the spouses, children, parents, siblings, significant others, extended family and affected co-workers of fallen officers. Each year, between 140 and 160 officers die in the line of duty and their families and co-workers are left to cope with the tragic loss. Organized in 1984, C.O.P.S. provides resources to help them rebuild their shattered lives. C.O.P.S., a nationally recognized and highly respected law enforcement support organization, offers programs for survivors, including the National Police Survivors' Conference held each May during National Police Week, scholarships, peer-support at the national, state, and local levels, “C.O.P.S. Kids” counseling reimbursement program, the “C.O.P.S. Kids” Summer Camp, “C.O.P.S. Teens” Outward Bound experience for young adults, special retreats for spouses, parents, siblings, adult children, extended family, fiances/significant others and co-workers, trial and parole support, and other assistance programs. “Apex is extremely proud to support C.O.P.S. with our Thin Blue Line Series of triggers. Like so many, we have watched in horror as the good men and women of law enforcement have come under attack. With each life lost there is a family and a community left behind to pick up the pieces. We hope that with the financial support generated through the sale of these triggers, C.O.P.S. can expand their efforts and help more families,” said Lee and Folk in a joint statement released by the company. “C.O.P.S. thanks Apex Tactical Specialties for their generous support of America's surviving law enforcement families. With each contribution, C.O.P.S. is able to continue to provide the healing Hands-On Programs at no cost to survivors, as the price they have paid is already too high,” says Dianne Bernhard, C.O.P.S. Executive Director. The new Thin Blue Line Series offered by Apex includes triggers for the Smith M&P, the M&P Shield and Glock model pistols. These are available now and you can find the full line here. About C.O.P.S. in their own words.
