Support the Museum with a monetary gift. Your donation helps us to accomplish our mission to promote social impact by building bridges between citizens and the law enforcement of Denver, creating opportunities for community understanding and engagement, strengthening the city’s relationship with the community, and educating youth to inspire community involvement, responsibility, and a future generation of law enforcement professionals. The Denver Police Museum is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit. The Museum relies on the generous support from individuals, corporations, and foundations to fund its many programs and preservation of its collection. Gifts to the Museum are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.

Make a Gift in Honor of a Fallen Officer. Help the Denver Police Museum honor and remember fallen law enforcement heroes. The Museum celebrates and honors the lives of fallen Denver law enforcement officers who have died in the line of duty. Through our ongoing Memorial Services, including placement of memorial signs at the locations where the officers lost their lives, wreath laying at gravesites, supporting the families of Fallen Officers, and telling the stories of their sacrifice, the Museum works to commemorate their courage, dedication, and unwavering commitment to preserving our safety and, ultimately, our way of life.

Donate an Artifact. The Museum’s collection is made up largely of artifacts donated by people like you, and we appreciate your desire to become involved in preserving law enforcement history. To tell a complete story of an Officer’s life requires the big as well as the small—even the day-to-day, mundane aspects of an Officer’s life are important to help promote a deeper knowledge and understanding of what law enforcement entails. Think about a display of an officer in a 1950’s Patrol Car. There is the uniform, the badges, hat, gun belt, name tag, the standard stuff you immediately think of. But what about the Daily Bulletin that would be on a clipboard? Or a “hot sheet” for stolen cars, the folder of documents required for taking reports, the ticket book, lunchbox, or flashlight? Or, consider a display of personal items that an officer might carry such as a cigarette case, prayer book, ID cards with a photo, commendatory letters.

Volunteer Your Time. Want to make a difference in your community and show your support for law enforcement? Help us tell the story of Denver law enforcement—past, present, and future as a volunteer with the Denver Police Museum. Volunteers play a vital role in the work we do. From special events and immersive programs, to collection management and officer memorials, we are always looking for extra hands to help out.
