About This Piece

Compassion, Strength, & Honor is a sculpture located outside of the Denver County Jail. It includes two representations of the sheriff badge. The upright badge has a mirror-like star, inviting the onlooker to become a part of the work. It also includes 21 rivets symbolizing the 21-gun salute performed at the annual Fallen Officer Memorial honoring fallen deputies. The leaning badge represents our fallen officers. This sculpture combines the past and the future of the Denver Sheriff Department in one piece of art.
