History of the Denver Police Department

The Denver Police Museum is home to a unique collection of artifacts related to the history of law enforcement. Our collection includes badges, uniforms, oral histories, vehicles, documents, ephemera, photographs, technology, equipment, and news clippings.

The Museum seeks to preserve a comprehensive view of Denver’s law enforcement history, one that creates opportunities for community understanding and engagement, strengthens the city’s relationship with the community, and inspires the next generation of law enforcement professionals.
