INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – Perhaps the most encouraging support for Renn’s family comes in the form of others who have been through the same thing.

Cindy Winzenread’s husband was killed in the line of duty 17 years ago. She now works with COPS, which stands for “Concerns of Police Survivors”, to offer families support, and to also just be able to relate.

“You remember the day before. You remember the day of and then all of a sudden you’ve got a whole different life that you didn’t want or you didn’t ask for,” said Winzenread.

The Indiana chapter of COPS had to split their response team into three groups this week to care for all three officers who were recently killed. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
