In Memoriam

Since the creation of the Colorado State Patrol in 1935, the agency has lost 27 members in the line of duty. These 26 individuals made the ultimate sacrifice in their service to the people of Colorado. Every current and past member of the Colorado State Patrol keeps these individuals and their families in their thoughts each and every day.
