The Cleveland Division of Police is proud to announce that our own Detective Jody Remington was recently awarded the John T. Corrigan Law Enforcment Award by the Cuyahoga County Prosecutor’s Office. The John T. Corrigan Award honors law enforcement officers who have by example, led a life of service to the community.
Detective Jody Remington was hired as a Patrol Officer on August 1, 1994. She spent her early years in Basic Patrol in the Second District and in 2005 became a Detective with the Second District Detective Bureau. Detective Remington was assigned to the Sex Crimes and Child Abuse Unit in 2005, where she has faithfully served the division and the community ever since.
On the Cuyahoga County Prosecutor’s website, Prosecutor Bill Mason had this to say about Detective Remington: “Jody has been with the Cleveland Police Department for 17 years. She possesses all critical attributes of a superior detective. She is intelligent, formidable in her pursuit of justice, reasonable, practical, and has sound judgment. Jody has always maintained a professional and self-assured presence. She possesses the somewhat rare ability to be both compassionate in her approach to the brutalized and distraught victims of sex crimes, yet tenaciousin the prosecution of their attackers. To say that Jody often goes “above and beyond the call of duty” would not begin to give her the credit she deserves.”
It is with great pride that the Division of Police congratulates Detective Jody Remington on a JOB WELL DONE!
