A message from Police Chief Jeff Shoemaker:
In light of recent events, we would like to encourage you to speak up if something is going on that does not seem right.
Children and adults need to be diligent in reporting incidents that may be harmful to others.
As stated by Chief Jeff Shoemaker, Cleveland Police Department:
In today's world, parents should not tell their children not to speak up or to not tell on someone. If a child is concerned about something, they need to feel free to speak about it with an adult. Children are a valuable resource for information. They spend a lot of time with their peers and are aware of what is going on and the "atmosphere" of a situation.
Encourage your children to be open with you about everything in their life - good and bad. Parents need to be receptive to the concerns of their children and let them know you are there for them.
Parents, children, and educators need to make law enforcement aware of any situation, no matter how trivial you may think it may be. Sometimes a little intervention is all it takes to make our lives safer.
Our officers are here for you 24/7.
Chief Jeff Shoemaker
