Colorado Line Of Duty Death Response Team Raising Funds

By Nick Metz, Chief of Police, Aurora Police Department

The challenges faced by agency heads and departments to honorably memorialize officers who have died in the line of duty, and care for their families and department personnel are daunting. The sad reality is there will be more, and your agency could be next.

The Colorado Line of Duty Death Response Team (COLODDRT) will bring together multi-agency professionals with a variety of specialized skills to respond, and assist any organization with a memorial service befitting a hero as needed.


The concept of creating the COLODDRT was proposed to the Colorado Association of Chiefs of Police (CACP) and County Sheriffs of Colorado (CSOC) recently, and met with overwhelming support. Since that meeting we have accomplished the following:

• Held an informational meeting for over 40 dedicated law enforcement professionals, representing almost 30 agencies from across the state to establish interest and commitment.

• Began accepting donations via the CACP, a recognized 501(c)3, who will ensure immediate disbursal of funds when the need occurs to the COLODDRT.

• Began to establish a leadership board.

• Coordinated with Washington’s LODDRT, Behind the Badge (BHB) Foundation, to provide two days of training in January of 2017, AT NO COST TO US!

• An upcoming leadership board meeting will prepare COLODDRT to respond if the need arises.


In order for the COLODDRT to best support the impacted agency it will require funding. A response to various parts of the state may require things like lodging, food, office supplies, equipment, team shirts, and specialized training. This is where we need your help. I am asking my fellow law enforcement professionals, and your agency to donate what you reasonably can, and if possible, annually.

Thank you to the CSOC and CACP who each have already donated $1,000.00, the Aurora Police Department for donating $1,500.00, and the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office who donated $2,500.00.

Please provide the attached donation form to members of your agency, as well as folks within your community and encourage them to donate what they reasonably can. Thank you for your support to this great cause.
