CARE of Police Survivors is delighted to welcome Richard Kotulecki as the first Head of Operations for the charity.

This is a new position established by the Trustees to ensure the organisation of the charity and its governance are fit for purpose and that COPS provides the type and level of peer support survivors need.

Following his appointment, Richard said, “I am delighted to be coming to COPS to take on what is, for me, a really exciting role.”

He added: ”I applied for the role because I believe that COPS provides a hugely important service not just for the families of the police officers killed on duty, but for our society as a whole.”

“In the UK, we are very lucky to live, safely and securely, with the knowledge that we are protected by men and women who volunteer to put themselves in harm’s way on our behalf. In return for this, we agree – or should agree – to a covenant making sure that these men and women and their families are properly looked after and supported.

“COPS fulfils part of that covenant by supporting Survivors and hence plays a large part in keeping society’s part of the bargain for our continued safety and security.”

Richards brings with him a track record for focusing on customer needs and providing effective solutions to complex issues.

Previously he has been the Director of Services for the Willow Foundation, a national charity supporting seriously ill adults by providing unique and special days.

He also runs his own company specialising in working with charities, local authorities, trade associations, schools to improve participation and manage fund-raising opportunities.

Richard has a degree in mechanical engineering, is a Prince 2 practitioner and a level I & II sports leadership tutor.
