How 2 Love Our Cops

upcoming events

Home Watch

This conference is for law enforcement spouses and significant others. We encourage, educate and facilitate community on this full day of instruction, connection, good food, and surprises. March 2, 2019 was our first conference in Sacramento, California and attended by over 160 women and men. Home Watch SoCal is scheduled for September 6, 2019. We have requests to take Home Watch to Florida and Oregon in 2020!


VOWS Retreat


Held near Belfry, Montana, this retreat is a safe place for officers who've been wounded in the line of duty and their spouses. Attendees experience five days of encouragement, connection with others who've been through similar incidents, recreational equine therapy, fly fishing, optional spiritual instruction, relaxation, and workshops specific to their circumstances.

"It is indescribable the feeling of being with others who understand. This retreat is a blessing from God! Can't thank you all enough." Attendee, 2019 Retreat


Hearts for Blue Gala

Held during Veteran's Day weekend, this event is our annual fundraiser, but we don't stop there. We incorporate education, encouragement, therapeutic humor, honor to our cops and military, and always some great surprises.

Our Inaugural Gala was held November 9, 2018, just 36 hours after the Camp Fire hit in nearby Paradise, California. Many of those who bought tickets for the event could not make it because of the fire--it was completely demolishing an entire town, and our officers were on mandatory tactical alert. The event was a welcome temporary distraction for a few hours for those who did attend--the night put the FUN in fundraiser. Bling, amazing raffle and silent auction items, incredible desserts, amazing food accompanied with musical themes of cop shows and movies, photo booth, and more. Truly a night to remember.
