Third District Police Headquarters and Communications Center Opens with a Community Ceremony

Mayor Frank G. Jackson was joined by Cleveland officials and community members at a ceremony to celebrate the newly constructed Third District Police Headquarters and Communications Center. The three-story, state-of-the-art 61,400-square-foot station on Chester Avenue near East 55th Street is an energy-efficient facility featuring local artwork and a community room for public meetings and events. In remembrance of the City of Cleveland Third District Police Officers killed in the line of duty, the names of the police officers were read and the flags were lowered at the old station (10600 Chester Avenue) and raised at the new location (4501 Chester Avenue) during a community commemorative dedication ceremony. 


The event will be held on Saturday, August 1, 2015 from 9am until 1pm at the Public Auditorium, 500 Lakeside Avenue.  Doors will open at 8am. Information is available at 216.420.8087 or 216.838.FACE (3223). The event will include workshops, school supplies (while supplies last) and more.  Mayor Jackson’s Youth Summit information online: Flyer with Details  | Twitter | Facebook | Media Advisory | Images from the 2014 Youth Summit

Applications will be used by the panel to determine recommendations for appointing ten individuals to serve on the inaugural Community Police Commission, as provided in the City's Charter. Applications are available online. Completed applications must be received or postmarked by August 6, 2015. Appointments to the Commission will be announced in early September.

The agreement marks a new way of policing, one built on a strong foundation of progressive change, sustained trust, and accountability. It is a reflection of ideas from people and groups across the community – including residents, civil rights organizations, activists, clergy, student groups, business and philanthropic organizations and elected officials, as well as the police unions and the Division of Police.
