First District Community Relations Awards

The Annual First District Police Community Relations Awards Ceremony was held at the St. Mary’s Romanian Orthodox Church, and a full house of recipients, friends and neighbors were in attendance to celebrate the event.

Besides the 1st District awardees we had the following Cleveland Police Foundation award recipients, Detective Kerry Adams, Detective Juan DeJesus, Ms. Angela Denise Green and representatives from the Browns Backers with a Twist.

In attendance were Mayor Bibb, Chief Drummond, numerous city dignitaries, and assisting me with the handing out of the plaques were CPF President Dick Clough and board member Jimmy Craciun. Upon completion of the awards an outstanding meal was provided to cap the evening off.

Congratulations go out to all the recipients, and thanks to all that attended to honor these fine individuals.
