37th Annual Fourth District Police/Community Relations Awards Ceremony

The 37th Annual Fourth District Police/Community Relations Awards Ceremony was held on October 4, 2018 at the Benjamin Rose Institute. A fine crowd gathered to honor both officers and citizens who went beyond the call of duty. The Cleveland Police Foundation also honored some very special people with our annual Community Service Awards. They were Detective Keith Walker, P.O. Marcus Jones, The Cleveland Housing Network, and Anita Gardner.

Among the recipients recognized by the Fourth District was a dear friend of the Cleveland Police Foundation, Mr. Nelson Beckford.  Mr. Beckford has assisted the CPF with many projects, especially the new community park dedicated to Fallen Officer Derek Owens. He has acted as an ambassador between the community and law enforcement and served as a catalyst for many collaborations between them.

A big thank you goes out to the Fourth District Community Relations Board and all the family, friends, and neighbors who came out and supported the recipients.

Congratulations to all the officers and citizens who were honored at this event.

Keep up the good work!                  Submitted by Bob Guttu, CPF
