Located in the plaza outside the Denver Police Department headquarters, the Denver Police Memorial was constructed in 1991 to honor officers who have lost their lives in the line of duty.

Today, the Denver Police Memorial is where the Police Department and other high-ranking Denver City officials gather to reflect and pay respect to the sacrifices made by fallen officers and their families in service to citizens of the City and County of Denver.

The Denver Police Memorial is sponsored and maintained by the Blue Hat Foundation and the Denver Police Foundation. The memorial event is organized and coordinated by the Denver Police Museum.

The Blue Hat Foundation partners with the Denver Police Museum and the Denver Police Foundation in sponsoring and presenting the annual Denver Police Memorial along with the Community Engagement Bureau. We also provide financial assistance for Denver police officers and the family members of fallen officers to represent the Denver Police Department at the National Police Memorial in Washington D.C.
