The Cleveland Police Awards Ceremony was held in Council Chambers at Cleveland City Hall to honor 35 City of Cleveland police officers and civilians who have shown exemplary service. This event recognized police officers who have gone above and beyond the call of duty for their outstanding service and acts of heroism.

Throughout the year, police officers go beyond the call of duty to protect and serve Cleveland communities. These officers make neighborhoods safer and improve the quality of life for the people in the City of Cleveland.

Citizens who have helped to strengthen their community by working closely with the police in their neighborhoods were also recognized with Citizen Awards.
