Dribbling with a CPF Officer of the Month

The Cleveland Police Foundation is investing in a safe community, and we are very proud of the work that our Officers of the Month do in the community!!  Sometimes the little things can amount to big things!!

P.O. John Graves, CPF Officer of the Month for May 2016 says, “Stopped Saturday, June 3 and played basketball for a few with some kids. Showed back up Sunday in uniform for a little more.  Just to see them smile, not believing that I actually stopped one day and then came back the next for more made my day.  They told me I have new friends.  Need some Advil!! Now start the short jokes.”
