Laurie Putnam

Laurie began her 10-year career with Concerns of Police Survivors (C.O.P.S.) in 2009. During her tenure at C.O.P.S. her responsibilities grew as the organization expanded. Laurie took the lead for all National Police Week registration, oversaw the operations and compliance of 55 C.O.P.S. Chapters across the nation, and provided guidance and assistance to survivors including the filing of Public Safety Officer Benefits.


Laurie served an integral part in providing an exceptional experience for survivors from the time they first became aware of C.O.P.S., to attending National Police Week, to filing benefits, connecting them with peer support and mental health resources, to chapter involvement throughout their journey.


In 2020, with the support of National C.O.P.S., Laurie followed her calling to begin a new non-profit organization whose mission is to foster hope by uniting survivors of law enforcement suicide to support one another and honor our fallen heroes.
