Cleveland 4th District Police Memorial - Cleveland 19 News Cleveland, OH

Cleveland 4th District Police Memorial

Fallen officers of Cleveland's 4th district were honored with a memorial. Hundreds of Cleveland Police Officers head off to work every day with the reality they may not return home.

Councilman Zack Reed and the City of Cleveland honored and recognized all Cleveland 4th District police officers who gave their lives in service to the community with a memorial dedication on December 5.

"These officers gave the ultimate sacrifice to my community," said Cleveland City Councilman Zack Reed. "This memorial serves as a testament to the commitment of these officers and a reminder to each of us of the important, and often dangerous, work these men and woman perform day in and day out."

The memorial is located in front of Cleveland's 4th District Police Station on 9333 Kinsman Road.

Discussion for a memorial began in 2008 with the tragic death of 4th District Officer Derek Owens, who was killed in the line of duty on March 1, 2008. The memorial will honor Officer Owens and other fallen officers from the district.

Mayor Frank G. Jackson, Cleveland City Council, the Cleveland Police Patrolman's Association and the RTA were all instrumental in helping move this project forward.  Funding for the police memorial came from public and private donations.
