The new stainless steel MTM Special Ops C.O.P.S. watches will feature a custom printing of the C.O.P.S. logo on the dial. There are three models in the collection made especially for C.O.P.S., each with its one serial number. Additionally, there is a specific model in the collection designated for those who want to honor a particular fallen hero. This watch can be custom engraved with the fallen officer’s name, rank and End of Watch (EOW).
“We’ve watched over the years as C.O.P.S. has not only touched the hearts of Survivors across America, but also literally saved many of their lives,” says Robert Greenberg, Founder of Law Enforcement Today. “It’s an honor to be able to rally our community around a company that has put together such an incredible fundraiser for the men and women saving lives at C.O.P.S.”
A naturally sensitive subject, honoring fallen heroes killed in the line of duty is difficult. According to MTM, C.O.P.S. and LET, the concept of being able to engrave a fallen officer’s name, badge number, EOW on a watch that can be worn every day is a way for survivors to honor that person forever.
