What can we say? Camelbak was
here first. Right from the beginning before there was a
Cops Helping Cops, Camelbak stepped up to the plate and helped
us out during Hurricane Katrina and has been there ever since.
Their product is a household name
and has been used by everyone from the military to the novice
Camelbak has also allowed us to
test their new products and give them feedback. This helps
them give everyone a better product.
We would like to send a HUGE
"THANK YOU" to Heather D.

CITY PATROLMEN'S BENEVOLENT ASSOCIATION
Michigan Sheriff's Association (MSA),
was another first. They were the first Law Enforcement
Agency to back Cops Helping Cops.
Undersheriff David Fowler, Co-founder
for Cops Helping Cops, has been in Law Enforcement for over 28
years. With Undersheriff Fowler's dedication and
loyalty to his job, it's no wonder they jumped onboard.
We ask that ALL agencies step up to
the plate and come join us make a difference.
New York City Patrolmen's
Benevolent Association (NYC PBA) welcomed Cops Helping Cops as
soon as we walked through the door.
Patrick Lynch, the PBA's president,
has let us not only speak, but allowed us to sell shirts and
other items to raise money. By allowing us to speak we
have been able to spread the word throughout NYC.
We have had many of NY's Finest come
down and help out. And we look forward to having more of
them in the future.
MARRIOTT HOTELS OF NEW
We cannot begin to explain just how
much the New Orleans Marriott's has done for Cops Helping Cops.
Right from our first trip ever, the JW
Marriott has helped us out. It is tough enough working on
homes from 7am - 6pm at night while giving up your vacation with
your family. The JW Marriott made it that much easier by
providing rooms to all that come down and help.
As Cops Helping Cops grew, so did the
generosity of the Marriott. We have had help from them
all. The JW Marriott, the Marriott New Orleans,
the Marriott New Orleans at the Convention Center,
the Marriott Renaissance Arts Hotel, the Courtyard
Marriott, and SpringHill Suites Marriott.
One of the managers, Michael
Giamundo, who has helped us make this connection has left
his position in New Orleans. Michael is now at the JW
Marriott of Buckhead, Atlanta. He will truly be missed by
us and the entire JW Marriott of New Orleans.
Stepping up to the plate, immediately
after Michael left, was the head the of Marriott's rooms and
operations. Steven Petty, normally found at the JW
Marriott has continued to help us without missing a beat.
We would like to recognize Steven for all his hard work in
making us successful.
Of course, we at Cops Helping Cops
would like to thank Mr. Marriott himself for creating this
wonderful chain of hotels filled with some of the most warm and
caring people I have ever met.
BTS Graphics was also another company
to help Cops Helping Cops right from the beginning.
BTS Graphics, owned and operated by
Tom Taylor, stepped up to the plate right in the beginning.
BTS has helped Cops Helping Cops with everything from designing
our logo to designing and printing our business cards and our
If you are in need of any type of
printing, please show your support for us by using BTS.
You won't be disappointed.
Enterprise of New
Orleans, by the New Orleans International Airport, is a large part of
each trip Cops Helping Cops has.
From the first trip to the present,
they have been nothing but accommodating. From tight
schedules to last minute requests, they always come through.
Enterprise also has a wonderful staff.
Eager to always help us out of a jam.
If you want your trip, whether it's
business or pleasure, to go that much smoothly, use Enterprise
of New Orleans.
STATE OIL TOOLS
Mid State Oil Tools has not only
helped Cops Helping Cops, but they have
helped the general public. They have
donated a Tractor Trailer that will be used
for Search and Rescue.
The Tractor will haul custom built trailers
that will be used for housing Search and
Rescue Teams giving them a safe haven for
when they sleep. Knowing your safe
when you sleep helps you be much more
productive during the search and rescue
process. This couldn't be more true
when your in a hostile environment such as
down south where alligators and snakes run
wild. We are also
considering making a trailer that is half Command Center
and half lodging.
We are still in the conversion process and
would gladly appreciate anyone's help in
this field or if you would like to donate
products to install in these trailers.
Norm's Sport and Marine is a
BIG part of Cops Helping Cops. Why? Norm St. Andrew,
owner of the shop, is also part of our team.
Norm loaned us boats during Hurricane
Katrina to do the rescues. He repaired and resurrected boats at
night to make sure we were successful during the day. And
above all, Norm was right out there with us every step of
Norm has got to have one of the
biggest hearts of anyone I know. If you need ANYTHING
marine, Norm's Sport and Marine is the only way to go.
