The Cleveland Police Foundation is honored to recognize Patrol Officer Anthony Lee as the May 2021 Police Officer of the Month
Patrol Officer Anthony Lee is a conscientious and dedicated individual who cares about the community he serves and has a special place in his heart for children!
Officer Lee has created the “Cops & Clippers” program that provides disadvantaged youth in the First District with a free haircut. The program works as follows: an officer or individual donates or purchases a ticket for $10.00 which is then handed out to a neighborhood youth. This of course is an excellent way not only for our officers to engage with the young people in the community, but also to help make them feel confident about their appearance.
When asked about this new concept, former First District Commander and now Deputy Chief Daniel Fay stated “The ‘Cops & Clippers’ program is a great opportunity for officers to engage with the young people in our community, and to build positive relationships between the police and the citizens we serve.”
Officer Lee is very pleased that other officers have stepped up and accepted a role in this endeavor and he hopes to expand the “Cops & Clippers” program throughout the city of Cleveland.
It is because of his dedication to the youth in the community and his overall devotion to his profession that the Cleveland Police Foundation is proud to name Patrol Officer Anthony Lee as its Police Officer of the Month for May 2021.
