Honoring Our Fallen

Patrol Officer David J. Fahey Jr. of the Cleveland PD and Trooper Kenneth Velez of the Ohio State Highway Patrol will be the latest officers to be commemorated on the Greater Cleveland Peace Officers Memorial, during the 32nd annual Police Memorial Commemoration this May 13-21, 2017. Sadly, they become the 184th and 185th officers from our region to have died in the line of duty since the founding of the Western Reserve. For more information, click here.

The Greater Cleveland Peace Officers Memorial Society has kept the legacy of our region’s fallen officers alive for over thirty years, especially those from Cuyahoga, Geauga, Lake, Lorain, Medina and northern Summit counties.

Since the GCPOM was first dedicated in 1993, it’s been necessary to add the names of more officers that have made the ultimate sacrifice. It’s due to these losses and the discovery of more officers that died in the line of duty throughout the history of our region that it has become necessary to expand the Greater Cleveland Peace Officers Memorial.

The expansion is made possible through the generous donations made by our citizens. We invite you to join in this effort to honor those who gave their lives in service to our communities. To make a donation, click here.
