The DPF is guided by a committed group of volunteers who comprise the Board of Directors. Directors develop and implement the mission, priorities and goals for program activities. Further, they monitor financial and program performance, measure effectiveness of efforts and shape future activities. Directors are drawn from the community and cannot be Denver elected officials or employees. However, the Board works closely with the leadership of the Denver Police Department representing its 2,000 officers and employees.
