Denver Police Week May 11-18, 2019

In 1962, President John F. Kennedy declared May 15 as Peace Officers’ Memorial Day and this week as National Police Week. The purpose of the proclamation was to pay tribute to the law enforcement officers who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our country and to voice our appreciation for all those who currently serve on the front lines of the battle against crime.

Here in Colorado we have lost over three hundred officers in the line of duty since Colorado became a state in 1876. In Denver, we have lost over 70 officers since the department was founded in 1859.

Police Week Kick Off with Blue Thunder 100 Motorcycle Run. The Denver Police Museum and the Untouchables Motorcycle Club are collaborating to organize a Motorcycle Ride to honor Colorado’s Fallen Officers. This year’s ride is scheduled on Saturday, May 11 starting at 9:00am at the Denver Police Academy. The ride will conclude at the Hoffbrau located at 9110 Wadsworth Pkwy, Westminster, CO 80021. 

Blue Prayer Day. Sunday May 12, the Denver Police Museum invites local churches to consider praying for the men and women who risk their lives to keep our communities safe.
