The Partner Newsletter

The word partner in police work has a special meaning. To police officers working the street, it’s a relationship that only law enforcement officers can truly understand. Your partner has your back… at that most critical time, when things can go from ordinary to surreal in milliseconds. You work together, know each other’s moves, and how each will react without having to think about it. Good communication is critical to a successful outcome.

Paramount to officer safety and effective police work are the wireless partners. Those unsung heroes working behind the scenes in the communications center.

There are also animal partners… canine and equine which also provide essential police services. All of these partnerships further good police work, safety, and service to the community.  Effective communication and teamwork are critically intertwined throughout.

Another critical partnership is police officers working in collaboration with citizens, businesses and organizations, as everyone wants a safer city.

The Partner serves as one of the tools that the Cleveland Police Foundation uses to foster positive relationships, team building with the Cleveland Division of Police, the community and police charities…. all joining together for a safer community.
