DENVER - Governor Jared Polis released the following statement on the passing of Commerce City Police Officer Curt Holland. 

“Yesterday we tragically lost Curt Holland, a Colorado police officer who worked day and night to keep the Commerce City community safe, and dedicated his life to serving others. I expressed my deepest sympathy to his widow Amanda today, and extend condolences to his family, friends and colleagues at the Commerce City Police Department. I know that words cannot heal your pain, but the entire state of Colorado grieves alongside you. Curt’s service will not be forgotten.”

Officer Holland leaves behind his wife Amanda, and two young children.

Flags will be lowered on the day of the service. A follow up announcement will be sent when that date is set. 

Another innocent Coloradan, Commerce City resident Francesca Dominguez, was also killed in this crash. The Governor’s thoughts go out to her family and friends during this difficult time.
