Artifact Honored

Posted: 25-Jan-2016

The Denver Police Museum was recently honored by the Colorado Collections Connection Most Significant Artifact Campaign! This campaign honors and recognizes Colorado’s cultural heritage organizations that care and preserve documents, films, diaries, books and other artifacts.

The Denver Police Museum submitted the “1955 Airline Sabotage Plane Fragment” along with the significant history associated with the subsequent trial.

The public voted (YOU!!) on the Top 10 and a committee of historians, museum directors. Archivists and librarians selected the Denver Police Museum submission as one of Colorado’s Most Significant Artifacts for 2015!

Your vote helped to enhance the museum’s ability to preserve and share the history of Denver’s law enforcement. This recognition is invaluable to include in grant applications, capital building campaign efforts and to provide recognition to the officers involved in the investigation and prosecution of notorious crimes that ultimately help keep our community safe!

Thank you for your time and interest in voting!

You helped the Denver Police Museum project win their first community recognition award!
