In partnership with the community, the Denver Police Department strives to operate a police agency focused on preventing crime in a respectful manner, demonstrating that everyone matters.
“I loved going on ride alongs with different officers and seeing how they interacted with community members on a daily basis. The officers had a strong sense of brotherhood and belonging that they didn't seem to be those cold people in uniforms as many people depict them to be.
I also loved working at properties and evidence. They store evidence from every single type of crime in Denver, and I got to see and work alongside talented officers, civilian workers, sergeants, and technicians.
At one point, I got to tour the emergency dispatch center and my inner-kid was very excited to see that it looked exactly how I pictured it to be: very big, with a lot of people working at desks and navigating about 6 computer screens each, little light-poles that identified as either police, EMT, or firefighter dispatch, and a lot of calls. It was amazing.”
