What are you doing to "GO GREEN" on Earth Day? Here are some of the things we are doing to preserve our planet for future generations. Our new cruisers are fuel efficient; we have greatly reduced our annual paper waste by using more electronic forms; and, the new roof being installed is made of a material to help keep the interior cool in the summer and warm in the winter, reducing energy use.

Thank you to our partners at SHFD for stopping in today to check the smoke alarms. Good thing you guys are close if we need you!

Roz Lyons-Range from Phase One Recovery for Women stopped by to drop off some special bags for our officers. The bags were a token of appreciation from the Alcohol, Drug Addiction, and Mental Health Services Board of Cuyahoga County. Thank you, we are glad we could help!

Marika & Michael Feigenbaum of Lucy’s Sweet Surrender did a great job of trying to convince us that police really do like donuts! Though that rumor is entirely false, everyone appreciates a good treat once in a while🤪 Thanks a lot for thinking of us this weekend! #loveshaker

National Public Safety Telecommunicators Week is April 8-14. In December, our city merged with several others to form a joint dispatch center now known as "Heights Hillcrest Communications Center." We are fortunate to have kept most of our dispatchers, as well as now having the expertise of other area dispatchers, help to provide quick and effective service. Thank you to everyone at "HHCC" for helping to protect our City!

The grass is cut, the lines are painted, and the bases are set. If you're traveling to the game or watching it with friends, remember to use Uber, Lyft, or designate a driver! Have a fun and safe Cleveland Holiday!! Go Tribe!

There are many active construction zones in the City that are full of hard working men and women. We understand these may cause delays and frustration when traveling. Please be aware of the heightened probability for accidents in construction zones. Help keep everyone safe by following all the laws of the road and allowing extra time to make it to your destination safely.

Happy Easter from everyone at SHPD! Call us if you need us - we will be here!

Good to know!

Pesach Sameach from everyone at SHPD!

She was was recently brought into our station, hoping we could reunite her with her family. If you know the owner of this dog, please ask them to contact Pepperidge Kennels at (440) 232-2964.

Officer Oklander never expected that stopping to help a disabled motorist would require a life saving effort. He and Officer Sidders soon learned Tamica Pruitte's two month old child, Tyra, was choking and not breathing. Way to go officers!

We’re frequently asked about crime statistics. The good news is that our Part 1 (most serious ) crimes are down significantly. In 1983, we had a reported 2,258 Part 1 crimes. In 2017, we had 386. And so far this year, Part 1 crimes are down 25 percent as compared to 2017. However, we recognize that as long as there is any number to report, we have work to do. That’s why our focus remains on ensuring there is a constant improvement in this trend. Crime is currently down, and this is mostly attributed to our partnership with the community. The bad news is that crime will continue to happen everywhere because bad people exist. However, we have been an effective team, and together we have achieved some good things. Let’s keep up the good work and great partnership! Call us if you need us. We will be here.

If you haven't seen him around town yet, let us introduce you to our newest arrival. K9 Roman has joined our department, and will be patrolling the streets with Officer Dave Emlaw. We look forward to many years of him sniffing out crime in the community.

We will have extra officers today near all rapid transit stations for those going downtown. Patrol efforts will also be increased on the roadways. Have an enjoyable but SAFE St. Patrick's Day.

So many choices, so much to lose! Ride the bus, ride the rapid, ride with friends. If you choose to drink and drive, you will ride with us!

While dropping off donation items for the Cleveland Mission, these University School third graders were treated to a tour of our operations. The donations are part of a joint effort to give back to the community.

Serving dinner to all the community volunteers who help us succeed! Thank you to all the Citizen’s Police Association members.

Criminals like nice weather too. Help us prevent problems before they start!
