Motorcycle Ride to honor Colorado’s Fallen Officers

Posted: 28-Mar-2019


Dear Police Supporter,

In 1961, President John F. Kennedy declared through Executive Order the Week of May 15 as National Police Week in the United States. The purpose of the Order was to encourage the citizens of country and law enforcement organizations to designate this week to honor those officers who have died in the line of duty. 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.

For the second year in a row, the Denver Police Museum and the Untouchables Motorcycle Club have collaborated to organize a Motorcycle Ride to honor Colorado’s Fallen Officers. This year’s ride is scheduled on Saturday, May 11 at 9:00am at the Denver Police Academy.

We are soliciting tax deductible contributions to support fallen officers and their families. The Denver Police Museum is a tax deductible organization with a non-profit number of 26-3631931.

We appreciate your consideration.
