This National Law Enforcement Appreciation Day (L.E.A.D), the City of Cleveland expresses gratitude to the brave members of the Division of Police who protect and serve our communities. In recognition of their commitment to creating a better quality of life for residents, we highlight the 15 Community Engagement Officers (CEO) who serve the city’s five districts.
CEOs are police officers chosen by their district commanders to identify the specific needs of their district through community outreach and community policing. These officers serve as a key resource by fostering positive relationships between residents, community groups and police.
CEOs, listed according to district, include:
- First District: Kerry Adams, Juan DeJesus and Lyniece Turner
- Second District: Carlos Garcia, Carole Hageman and Hubert Kidd
- Third District: Howard Hart III, Ervin Lee, Jr. and Rashawn Rahim
- Fourth District: Antonio Andino, Carmen Hall and Crystal Lewis
- Fifth District: Nelson Muniz, Sabrina Walker and Aarius Waters
L.E.A.D is an opportunity for civilians to show their support and appreciation for the services provided by local law enforcement officers. Residents can demonstrate their support by wearing blue, sending cards and letters of appreciation to local police departments and by saying “thank you” to local officers.
