Congrats to First District Citizens Police Academy Graduates

The Cleveland Division of Police Citizens Police Academy is a little stronger as 16 new members graduated last week from the First District. This group acquired a deeper understanding of the workings of the Division of Police in a nine week course taught by two outstanding CPD Officers, Donna Brown, and Anthony Jones.
In attendance to celebrate the graduation were Deputy Chief Sammy Morris, Lt. Arnel Rose, Councilman Brian Kazy, and representing the Cleveland Police Foundation were Executive Director Rick DeChant and Community Outreach Coordinator Bob Guttu.
A big congratulations to all the graduates, and we encourage you to join the Citizens Police Academy Alumni Association to further your education.
