The Cleveland Police Foundation is honored to recognize Sergeant Amy Harper and Detective Beverly Fraticelli as the November 2022 Police Officers of the Month.
Sergeant Amy Harper and Detective Beverly Fraticelli recently performed in an exemplary manner well beyond the call of duty in their commitment to officer well-being and service to the community. These two outstanding officers are members of the Cleveland Police Women’s Network and recognized the need for care in women’s health among the CPD members and their families when it comes to breast cancer and other types of cancer that affect women across the country.
This past September they organized a fundraising event which included sponsors and businesses donating gifts to be raffled off to raise funds for women’s health. This event took months to plan and had many logistical moving parts requiring much of their personal time. This event also resulted in raising thousands of dollars for women’s health and included the sale of over 300 pink badges to officers across the division that were worn in the month of October to show their support for women’s health and the fight against cancer.
I reached out to Captain Tim Maffo-Judd, who nominated these officers and stated, “With so many officers being affected by cancer in many different ways, Sgt. Harper and Detective Fraticelli recognized an area of need and took a proactive approach to raise funds, bond together, and show support for affected officers and their families and screen for future health risks. For these reasons, these two accomplished policewomen deserve to be recognized as the Cleveland Police Foundation’s Officers of the Month.” It is because of their dedication and devotion to a deserving cause that the Cleveland Police Foundation is proud to name Sgt. Amy Harper and Detective Beverly Fraticelli, our Police Officers of the Month for November 2022.
