Kevin Marples

CEO | Project Manager

Kevin is the founder and CEO of BlueGovTech LLC. In 2011, Kevin started his career in law enforcement with the University of Colorado Police Department – Boulder. While there, Kevin began to dive into how law enforcement agencies process and share data, not only between agency staff, but with the community. In 2015, Kevin left CUPD to continue his law enforcement career with the City of Boulder Police Department.

While at BPD, Kevin worked in several roles, including Patrol Officer, SWAT Crisis Negotiator, Police Training Officer, LGBTQ Liaison, and finally, as a Detective in the Major Crimes Unit and member of the Boulder County Investigative Team. While in these roles, Kevin continued to also build out operational dashboards, where agency staff could find commonly used resources. This included building an internal mobile application, deployed through Intune Company Portal. For six years Kevin managed his primary workload as an officer/detective, as well as designing, building, and developing technology solutions for the department.

In 2021, Kevin retired his badge to accept a position with the department as an IT Applications Senior Administrator. In a period of eight months, Kevin led multiple projects and continued to build additional IT solutions. This included a completely customized scheduling platform, a stop data collection module, two proposals for over $150,000 of awarded funds from FirstNet, an entire police vehicle technology upgrade project and transitioning the entire police department to new mobile devices and onto the FirstNet/AT&T network. Executive staff and supervisors at the police department often acknowledged by exceptional work ethic as well as his substantial impact on the overall organization. Kevin’s work was highlighted by agency staff in the form of multiple awards, including Officer of the Year (2018), Award of Excellence (2017, 2019, 2021) and others.

In February of 2022, Kevin left employment with the City of Boulder to launch BlueGovTech. In addition to Kevin’s professional experience, he also received a B.S. in Information Technology from the Colorado State University System.
