For Denise Cummings, being a police officer was a life-long dream. Inspired by her Uncle Nick, an officer with the Cicero (IL) Police Department, she applied with the Aurora (CO) Police Department when she was 25. At the time, there were only 20 openings, and she was the 42nd applicant. Undaunted, she decided to become a reserve officer, a voluntary position that she hoped would help improve her chances of being hired the next time.

There’ll be plenty to do all day, inside of the Museum and out. The festivities get started at 9 am with our annual Run for the Badge. This 5K walk or race takes place in front of the Museum. While fundraising isn’t required to participate, every dollar raised supports the important mission of the Museum to help tell the story of American law enforcement. In-person participants also receive a voucher for one future Museum admission, good through November 16, 2018. Visit Run for the Badge for details or to register.
