CPDS members representing every Division in the department joined forces to support the Special Olympics through the Law Enforcement Torch Run on June 1, 2017. A total of 90 CDPS members joined the team and donated a total of $4,315 -- Making CDPS by far the No. 1 agency participating the Torch Run event. CDPS donations accounted for about one-third of the total donations raised by all agencies participating in this event. This was the first year CDPS participated as an entire agency, and the outcome far outpaced prior participation by any single CDPS division.

Team events like these reflect the values and mission of CDPS. Internally, participating in collaborative efforts to give to the community strengthens our bonds and builds employee engagement; externally, CDPS involvement in community events like these enhances our relationships with those we serve and demonstrates our commitment to core values of service to others, community involvement, hard work, honor, duty, respect and unity.
CDPS members' next charitable efforts in support of the Special Olympics will be the Tip a Cop event at Chili's restaurants throughout Colorado on July 9, 2017.
