Cleveland Police Department News

We were so honored to be asked by Waterville Elementary School to participate in their career day demonstrations. Children who may have experienced a family member being taken to jail or overheard conversations concerning arrests of loved ones can develop negative perceptions of police officers. We like to show children that police officers are human beings that have hobbies and have a passion to serve their community, no matter the cost. Hopefully, some young minds were changed today, the Dancing Cop usually has a tendency to do that! ♥️🕺🏻 #CommunityPolicing #DancingCop

HUGE SHOUTOUT 🔊🗯 to Public Church for showing ♥️ to the CPD with a card and amazing cookie 🍪 cake for our police officers!

On February 13, 2018, Cub Scout Pack 3075 visited CPD to meet with SWAT members and learn about specialized units. Sgt Allen, Sgt Bailey, and Officer Thompson showed the pack some of their equipment and let them see what it takes to haul their gear to each call. The kids had great questions and the parents were just as curious!

The Cleveland Fire Department responded to Olive Garden, 4499 Keith Street in Cleveland at 1:04pm on a odor investigation and multiple complaints by individuals of nausea and vomiting. Restaurant personnel were advised by fire officials to begin evacuation while fire engines were in route. Cleveland Fire Department Hazardous Incident Response Unit entered the restaurant to confirm total evacuation and any imminent life threats. A list of all chemicals involved were produced and it was determined that ortho boric acid was the primary cause of symptoms described by employees. Eleven Olive Garden employees transported themselves to Tennova Emergency Room where they were treated. Olive Garden will be closed for the remainder of the night. Please call 423-339-3330 to confirm operating hours for Saturday, March 3, 2018.

Really? It’s 2018!!! Hopefully you remembered what today is! It’s Valentines Day! Most women (and some men) expect the items pictured here ⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️ However, research studies show that in 2018, technology will reach new heights! This can be revolutionary....for YOU...maybe! 🤓 If you have: A.) forgotten it’s Valentines B.) don’t have the money for any of these over priced items C.) don’t want to spend the money for any of these over priced items D.) think that Valentines Day is over commercialized E.) don’t want to fight the crowds at WalMart or Dollar General (they have $1 balloons) It COULD BE acceptable to TAG your Valentine in one or ALL of these photos and it pretty much works the same as if you purchased the item and had it delivered (we can try it anyway). Happy Valentines Day! Good luck?

Congratulations to Sergeant Chris Allen (not pictured) & QuarterMaster Tom Castello on their recent graduation from MTAS Level 1 Training #TeamLead
