• Outside agencies, businesses and organizations must complete the Logo Usage Application to utilize the name, trademark or logo, or other intellectual property of C.O.P.S.
• All agencies, businesses and organizations must sign this logo usage agreement.
• Nothing may be placed over the National C.O.P.S. logo.
• Inclusion of this logo in any design must be approved, prior to production, by Sara Slone, National C.O.P.S. Director of Public Relations. Designs may be sent via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.

The main colors in the Concerns of Police Survivors official logo are shown below. The Pantone colors are listed along with the process builds for the 4-color printing.

The Pantone Color Matching System (PMS) is largely a standardized color reproduction system. By standardizing the colors, different manufacturers in different locations can all refer to the Pantone system to make sure colors match without direct contact with one another.

Black/White/Grayscale Logo Usage
C.O.P.S. will provide a one-color or grayscale logo upon request. It is our understanding that this logo can/will be used without the aforementioned “white” behind the shield due to the nature of printing. The one-color logo may also be used for merchandise, but please contact the National Director of Public Relations, Sara Slone, firstname.lastname@example.org, in advance of printing.
