This year, May 15-21 has been designated as Police Week (see Governor Hickenlooper’s press release). On May 15, fallen officers were recognized with a ceremony and lowered flags for Peace Officers Memorial Day. Colorado continues to remember its fallen officers through listings and memorial sites. Some of Colorado’s fallen officers have worked for state agencies, including correctional officers and state patrol. Both agencies have lists of their fallen peace officers on their websites. For a list of fallen correctional officers, click here. For information on fallen State Patrol officers, click here. We honor those officers who have given their lives in the line of duty.
