Police Memorial Celebration

Mayor Frank G. Jackson and City of Cleveland officials, alongside spectators and members of the Greater Cleveland Peace Officers Memorial Society, convened on Lakeside Avenue in honor of the annual Police Parade and Memorial Service.

Following the parade, participants were welcomed at the memorial service, themed “Keeping the Promise.” The ceremony followed a week of commemoration that encouraged citizens to recognize law enforcement officers for their dedicated service and to honor those who died in the line of duty. The event was also attended by Chief of Police Calvin Williams, law enforcement officers and surviving family member of fallen officers.
