Officer Celena Hollis transferred to the Denver Police Department on October 3rd, 2005 after serving as a police officer with the Detroit Police Department. She served as a patrol officer in District Two and was a member of the Street Crime Attack Team (SCAT). She used her Critical Incident Training skills to de-escalate several hostile and potentially violent incidents, including successfully assisting an Iraqi war veteran who suffered from PTSD. Officer Hollis has been recognized numerous times for her outstanding performance and service to the community.
Officer Hollis served as the President of the Denver Police Department Black Police Officers Organization and was a resident of Denver. She is survived by her twelve year daughter and the rest of her family. She was an amazing person with an engaging smile who was well liked and respected by her colleagues and the community she served. She will be missed.
