District One Commander Jeff Martinez has served the Denver Police Department for 23 years in numerous capacities, including Patrol, Internal Affairs, Gang Bureau and Training Academy. He is a proud Denver native and Denver Public Schools graduate who grew up in a modest Southwest neighborhood, as well as the Northwest Denver community which he will now serve as District Commander.
Jeff is passionate about bringing law enforcement and the community together. He has partnered with several local organizations, developed programs for underserved youth and DPS students, volunteered his time in the elderly community, assisted individuals re-entering the community post-incarceration, mentored minority and female police applicants, and he’s worked to raise officer awareness around implicit bias through the DPD Perspectives in Policing program. He is very active in various Denver groups including Latino and Vietnamese communities, the Little Saigon District and the Colorado Hispanic Coalition.
Jeff is currently a Board member with Denver Inner City Parrish, and he’s a former Board member of the Colorado Latino Forum, Denver Police Protective Association and the National Latino Police Officers’ Association. Commander Martinez and his wife, also a Denver native, still choose to live in Denver where they regularly enjoy spending time with their six children and eight grandchildren.
