Police Week 2015: Badge Case Ceremony
Today, the annual Badge Case Ceremony was held at Police Headquarters to honor officers who lost their lives in the line of duty. A large glass case mounted on the first floor of headquarters holds 111 badges, all of Cleveland Police Officers who were killed in the line of duty. This solemn event is attended by current officers, citizens, clergy and most importantly, surviving family members of the fallen officers. We gather for this ceremony each year to renew our vow to never forget.
