Officers Ismail Quran and Theresa Tobin Honored as December 2023 Police Officers of the Month by Cleveland Police Foundation

This month’s Police Officers of the Month are Officers Ismail Quran and Theresa Tobin and their dedication to service is an excellent example of the pride they have in their job, and the core values of the department.

I reached out to Fifth District Lieutenant Chris Haist, who nominated these officers and he stated, “These two officers worked endless hours on this case and were responsible for arresting 13 juvenile suspects wanted for a variety of crimes. These crimes include but are not limited to Homicide, Felonious Assault, Receiving Stolen Property and weapons charges for several guns that were recovered.

“After working a double shift and being offered relief, they both indicated that they wanted to see the arrest through, and stayed until the juveniles were at the Detention Center. They both did an outstanding job, getting these violent juveniles off the street, and making the city safer for residents.”

It is because of their dedication and devotion to their job and the City of Cleveland that the Cleveland Police Foundation is honored to name Officer Ismail Quran and Theresa Tobin our Police Officers of the Month for December 2023.
