A Dysfunctional Denver Police Administration & Dishonored US Flag

We have completed our investigation and are confident this is an accurate review of a very troubling incident involving five honorable officers of the Denver Police Department and the inexcusable actions of a Deputy Chief of that department.

The Guardians. The Unsung Heroes of Public Safety - Thank You

I posted this picture one year ago today. As we finish up the week we recognize 911 Dispatchers and I sit to reflect in my almost 25 years of doing this job. When I started this job I wanted to get my foot in the door to be a cop, I sure am glad I changed my mind and stuck with being a dispatcher. It has been a good ride and a great career.

Why The F.O.P.? 
"No one knows the dangers and the difficulties faced by today's police officers better than another officer, and no one knows police officers better than the F.O.P."

FRANK GALE SUPPORT FUND

In what has been an ongoing effort to seriously weaken or destroy the Denver Sheriffs Deputies FOP Lodge 27, the City of Denver manufactured an internal case and fired one the FOP’s top leaders and most outspoken advocates for union rights. Frank Gale is fighting this action and the FOP's attorneys are certain Frank will prevail.  It will be a long hard fight.  In response to requests from across the country a support fund has been established to accept donations to provide Frank financial aid through this difficult financial time.  Please give what you can.  Click on the “Donate” button below to link to our secure account. Thank you.
