Fallen Officers

The Colorado Springs Police Department has lost thirteen officers in the line of duty since it was established.  In eternal memoriam, we honor them with this page and hope that the page will serve as a beacon of hope and remind us that these officers stood between us and evil. Their dedication and ultimate sacrifice have contributed to the safety of our community.  They will not be forgotten.  

"All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing" - Edmund Burke
