The Denver Police Museum (DPLEM) is a Colorado 501c 3 non-profit corporation formed in 2008. Its mission includes explaining, and preserving critical parts of Denver’s law enforcement history. The transition our city made from a “wild west cow town” to a modern cosmopolitan city is reflected in our many artifacts, photos and equipment. Another key DPLEM goal is to develop an interactive full service museum focused o outreach to all segments of our community. Special emphasis will be aimed toward our young citizens exposing them to various career opportunities and challenges involved in modern law enforcement. “Hands on” types of activities including CSI experiments, simulators be a key part of the museum.
