The Colorado Chapter of Concerns of Police Survivors (C.O.P.S.), a non-profit agency whose mission is rebuilding the shattered lives of survivors and co-workers affected by law enforcement line of duty deaths, is honored to announce in conjunction with Colorado State Patrol (CSP), Colorado Department of Corrections (DOC), and the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office, a series of Honor Processions and an event entitled CSP Remembers which will take place on Friday, May 15, 2020. These events will be in Louisville, Aurora, Canon City, and Colorado Springs. They will honor and remember Law Enforcement and Corrections Officers who laid down their lives for their respective communities, the State of Colorado, and the United States of America in 2019 and 2020.

Traditionally, in the second week in May of each year, the National Chapter of C.O.P.S and the National Chapter of the Fraternal Order of Police co-host National Police Week in Washington, D.C., culminating with the National Law Enforcement Memorial Day Service at the U.S. Capitol. Unfortunately, both events were cancelled this year due to health concerns involved in gathering tens of thousands of people at many events throughout the week and a gathering of 2019 Survivor Families, Co-workers, and friends of fallen officers at the memorial service.

Thanks to the dedicated volunteers of Colorado C.O.P.S., and the hundreds of law enforcement and corrections officers involved, the families and co-worker survivors will be honored and the respective officers remembered with an honor procession of law enforcement and corrections officers in marked patrol cars from multiple agencies around the State of Colorado. In addition, Colorado C.O.P.S. will be presenting a Colorado Columbine to the families of those officers who were killed in the line of duty in Colorado in 2019, and 2020, to be planted in memory and honor of their loved-one.

  • On March 13, 2019, Colorado State Patrol Corporal Daniel Groves was killed in the line of duty near Roggen, Colorado, after being struck by a vehicle while he was attempting to help a motorist whose vehicle had slid off the roadway.
  • On June 14, 2019, Colorado State Patrol Master Trooper William Moden was struck and killed by a vehicle while investigating an accident on I-70 near Deertrail, Colorado.
  • On December 4, 2019, Colorado Department of Corrections (DOC) Sergeant Joshua Voth was killed in the line of duty by a boiler explosion accident at the Fremont Correctional Facility in Canon City, Colorado.
  • On April 1, 2020, EL Paso County Sheriff’s Office Deputy Jeff Hopkins died after contracting Covid19 Coronavirus while on-duty.

As Colorado State Patrol holds the CSP Remembers Event and Colorado DOC and the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office conduct their respective Law Enforcement Memorial Honor Processions with the assistance of  multiple state and federal law enforcement officers and Colorado Concerns of Police Volunteers, the families of these fallen heroes will be honored and their loved ones remembered on National Law Enforcement Memorial Day 2020.
