PEORIA, Ariz., – Apex Tactical Specialties has donated another $25,000 to Concerns of Police Survivors (C.O.P.S.) bringing the company’s total donation from sales of its Thin Blue Line Series triggers to $125,000.
“We’re very pleased to announce that through the sale of our Thin Blue Line Series of triggers, Apex has now raised and donated $125,000 to C.O.P.S. Concerns of Police Survivors’ mission is a critical one for the law enforcement community and we’re extremely proud to support C.O.P.S. as Apex’s charity of choice,” said Scott Folk, COO of Apex.
Apex’s Thin Blue Line Series was launched on October 31 in 2016 to support the not-for-profit Concerns of Police Survivors whose mission it is to rebuild the shattered lives of the survivors who have lost a loved one in the line of duty. The Thin Blue Line Series from Apex currently features 16 trigger kits designed for a variety of popular pistols. Apex donates 25% to C.O.P.S. from each Thin Blue Line Series product sold.
“We are so grateful to be Apex Tactical's charity of choice and we thank everyone who has supported C.O.P.S. through the purchase of the Thin Blue Line Series. The money raised supports all survivors in our membership, which unfortunately continues to grow each year with each line-of-duty death our nation suffers. We look forward to a continued relationship with Apex and their generous employees and customers who believe in our mission to rebuild shattered lives,” said Dianne Bernhard, executive director of C.O.P.S.
