The City of Cleveland is home to a diverse community that is actively engaged in civic issues and continues to move the city forward towards an exciting future. As our city progresses, it will face challenges and adversity.
The time is upon us now that we will write one of the most challenging chapters of recent times here in the City of Cleveland. It is anticipated that the verdict in the case of Patrol Officer Michael Brelo will be reached within the near future. The City of Cleveland recognizes that the conversation surrounding this topic can be tense.
However, we must allow conversations to be held and opinions to be expressed, rationally and respectfully. Now is the time that we stand together and hear one another. Now is the time that we stay strong as a community.
The Department of Community Relations wants to hear your thoughts on police and community relations. All thoughts, criticism, and ideas are welcome.
Join in the conversation using #OurCLE and follow @CRBCleveland @CityofCleveland @CLEpolice
We look forward to hearing and sharing your thoughts as we move toward a stronger Cleveland
-Executive Director of the Community Relations Board, Blaine Griffin
