Other Programs We Support
In mid-August 1994, my younger brother was killed in the line of duty as a Massachusetts State Trooper. C.O.P.S formed shortly thereafter and with their support, my family was able to recover from this tragic event. This year it was METRO BOSTON PROPERTY INSPECTIONS’ pleasure to be able to provide 150 M&M filled candy canes to support the C.O.P.S. Christmas Party. In 2018, we look forward to expanding our participation with cops by donating a portion of every inspection this program. ~Tod Whiting, Metro Boston Property Inspections
For more information about C.O.P.S. see below:
Concerns of Police Survivors, Inc., also known as C.O.P.S., is a nationwide non-profit 501(c)(3) organization providing resources to assist in the rebuilding of the lives of survivors of law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty as determined by Federal government criteria. The New England Chapter supports survivors in Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Vermont.
The New England Chapter of C.O.P.S. began its mission in July, 1995. Each year, between 140 and 160 officers are killed nationally in the line of duty and their families and co-workers are left to cope with the tragic loss. The national and local chapters of C.O.P.S. provide resources to help them rebuild their shattered lives. There is no membership fee to join C.O.P.S. – the price paid is already too high.
Aside from our occasional fundraisers (like our fun annual golf tournament), we rely on donations from supportive organizations, businesses, and individuals. If you would like to donate to New England C.O.P.S., you can donate using the mailing address listed below – any amount would be appreciated. Your check can be made out to The New England Chapter of Concerns of Police Survivors.

Rotary/Red Cross Sound the Alarm
In October of 2017 Metro Boston, Property Inspections Volunteered to work with Rotary and The Red Cross Sound the Alarm program, installing smoke and carbon monoxide detectors in low-income housing in the Greater Boston area. Unfortunately, the program was postponed due to the devastation caused by the hurricanes in the south. When the program is rescheduled Metro Boston Property Inspections will be there to help.
