AN UPDATE: The Citizens Academy of the Cleveland Police

The first Cleveland Police Citizens Academy of 2021 is coming to an end!  The class met for its second to the last time as the citizen-participants had the opportunity to learn about the Cleveland Police Ordnance Unit.

The engaged citizens learned about the training that police officers go through as the class enacted real hands-on scenarios.  They also learned about stressors  that officers can face when doing their duties.

A special thank you goes out to Sergeant Keith Campbell for his meticulous teaching.  A higher level of expertise was evident in his presentations.  Sergeant Campbell serves as the Ordnance Unit Officer in Charge (OIC).

To sign up for the next Citizens Academy, please contact Officer Larkin at 216-623-3328 (email:
