The Foundation recognizes the dedication, effort and sacrifice of the men and women of the Denver Police Department, both sworn and civilian. We believe it is important to recognize and show appreciation for their efforts.

Denver Police Department – Police Memorial Service
Annually, during Police Week, in partnership with the Denver Police Officers Foundation and Denver Police Museum, the DPF gathers to pay tribute to Denver Police Officers who have made the ultimate sacrifice. Fallen officer families, current sworn and civilian staff, DPD retirees, and City dignitaries gather near at the DPD Memorial each year.
