"I'm married to a police officer. He was shot on duty, and I searched for a support group. When I couldn't find one, I decided to start CopsWives," she said.
"We discuss situations going on in our husbands' departments. We talk about fears that new cops' wives have. We share ideas for firearms safety. We also relate our experiences with the pros and cons of various shifts and/or job titles," Rebecca said.
One member, Tiffany, said, "As the wife of a soon-to-be police officer, the women on this list have offered me support and encouragement drawn from their own experiences as being cops' wives. I know that I can always rely on them."
CopswivesTM go through a flood of emotions unknown to other wives. We deal with a lot of issues unique to the career which our husbands have chosen.
If you need a place to open up and share your feelings, visit http://groups.yahoo.com/group/copswives/ and subscribe to an e-mail group intended to lend support to wives of cops. List members can discuss issues unique to being married to a police officer. We can share fears, moments of pride, job opportunities within various departments, and more! Subscriptions to this e-mail group must be approved by the moderator. This is to safeguard list members from abuse from "outsiders."
We also have a closed Facebook group, just note others cannot see posts, only members, but in this group, we only require you to tell us you are a cop's wife.
Also, http://CopsWives.com will be your best resource for great links to sites dealing with law enforcement issues (from the wife's perspective).
