The Virginia Coalition of Police and Deputy Sheriffs is a Commonwealth wide association of police unions and associations representing working street level police.  Virginia COPS provides a commonwealth of representational, organizational, and advocate support for street level police officers working in Virginia.

Virginia COPS was formed out of a a group of law enforcement officers who met in Richmond early in 1990 that consisted of leaders from the Alexandria Committee of Police; the Arlington Coalition of Police; the Virginia Beach Police Benevolent Association; and other police officers working in Richmond and throughout the Virginia.  It was developed to provide a state wide voice for the working needs of police officers, their law enforcement organizations.  

The Virginia Coalition of Police and Deputy Sheriffs holds at least three training conferences a year around the state; VCOPS offers grants to officer street survival schools and other training not normally available through the workplace.  Follow the links on the left to learn more about our programs.
