Third District & VA Police: United for Our Community

third district va

The Third District and the Veteran’s Affairs (VA) Police, led by Chief Ricker, are joining forces to better serve our neighborhoods, including the VA Hospital area. This initiative, sparked by a meeting between Third District Commander Tucker and VA Police, is a testament to our shared commitment to community safety and support for veterans.

This collaboration promises enhanced safety measures and stronger community ties, particularly benefiting our veterans and their families. The Cleveland Police Foundation and the Cleveland Division of Police are excited about this partnership’s potential to make a significant, positive impact.

Stay tuned as we work together for a safer, more united community.
