Cleveland Police Foundation’s Community Engagement Initiative
(10.27.15) The City of Cleveland, Division of Police, in partnership with Saint Luke’s Foundation and the Cleveland Police Foundation, recently kicked off its community policing and engagement initiative within the Fourth District. This initiative is being supported through a Foundation grant.
As part of the initiative, police officers walk foot patrols in high traffic areas, parks and business districts throughout the Buckeye neighborhood. Officers also participate and engage residents in scheduled events and conduct training programs. Additionally, work involves active problem solving around community issues with partners such as Cleveland Neighborhood Progress, Boys & Girls Clubs of Cleveland, and East End Neighborhood Center.
“By increasing the number of positive police and community interactions, it is our hope that it will help to reduce crime and increase the sense of safety, cooperation and community in Greater Buckeye“, said Anne Goodman, President and CEO of Saint Luke’s Foundation.
