COPSA is here to help. When an Administrative Assistant to the Chief of Police in ANY town/city of Connecticut needs someone to cover his/her office for important department events, know that your backup is only a call away. We will coordinate a COPSA member to come to your office and cover for the Administrative Assistant to the Chief while she is at a funeral, promotional ceremony, etc. We understand the confidential nature of her job because we do this job in our departments. Whether you are a member or not, this service is extended to all Administrative Assistants to the Chief of Police.
Assist with hiring a new Administrative Assistant to the Chief. Hiring a new Admin. Assistant is a difficult job. It takes a special person to fill this position and who better to assist with this process than someone who is already doing the job? We will assist with job descriptions, salary information and interviewing.
COPSA assists with registering children for Kids Camp.
Email Trees are an important tool for COPSA. Should we ever need to survey the group on any topic, ask a question or solicit ideas, an email tree request is sent out to the entire group. Responses are immediately sent back to the initiator. This is a powerful tool and has helped each of us collect information from member police departments.
