• C.O.P.S. Blue Blood drives are a chance for communitie­s to come together and donate blood in honor of fallen police officers — and those who continue to sacrifice so much for our communitie­s. For every successful blood donation made at a Blue Blood Drive, CBCO will donate $10 to Arkansas C.O.P.S. In addition, all donors will receive a special C.O.P.S T-shirt, while supplies last.

Drives are scheduled for the following dates and locations:

— Jan. 23: Bella Vista Police Department from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. at 105 Town Center in Bella Vista

— Jan. 27: Pea Ridge Police Department from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. at 187 Slack St. in Pea Ridge

C.O.P.S. is a national nonprofit organizati­on which provides resources to families and co-workers of law enforcemen­t officers who have died in the line of duty every year. The Blue Blood Drives will be held in honor of the more than 200 Arkansas law enforcemen­t officers who have died in the line of duty in state history.
