DENVER - They say behind every great man is a great woman.
A group of Denver Police wives put together a calendar featuring the men and women of the Denver Police Department.
It’s a way to humanize the officers and show them doing normal things like helping out in the community, being a father, and inspiring our youth.
It’s a look behind the badge to bridge the gap between the community and law enforcement.

It's the first of its kind in the nation and it was just unveiled this week.
You might recognize some of the names in it as well.
Officer John Adsit, who was critically injured after he was run over while patrolling a high school rally is featured in the calendar, along with Sgt. Tony Lopez Jr., who was shot six times and fought to make a full recovery.
Sgt. Lopez's wife, Kristen Lopez, along Detective Gerald Sloan (AKA Mr. November) stopped by this morning to talk about the calendar, the inspiration behind it and where the proceeds go.
Calendars are available at Denver branches of Alpine bank or on Amazon.com. The net proceeds from the calendar will go to the Denver Police Foundation. The Denver Police Foundation (DPF) is a Colorado nonprofit, charitable organization.
Its mission is to act as an independent and unique funding and advocacy resource for the Denver Police Department with the goal of enhancing public safety and law enforcement in the Denver community.
