Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2023, $500,000)

The Cleveland Division of Police has gained tremendous
insights through its involvement in the PSP Program. They
have completed the majority of the recommendations made
in the assessments and have had strong support from
members of police command staff through the mayor’s
office to continue implementing the recommendations.
Cleveland Police has completed 35 of the 57 PSP
recommendations. An additional 15 are in progress. Three
are pending, and two are to be completed. Two will not be
implemented because they are no longer needed. This
additional funding will allow us to drive home the most
important recommendations.
Cleveland is the only PSP city to request and be approved
for a fourth year in PSP. We have taken this opportunity
seriously and look forward to continuing to benefit from the
knowledge we have gained.
The funding from this grant will allow the Cleveland
Division of Police to complete recommendations related to
crime analysis, technology, and community engagement,
allowing them to drive home all of the successes they have
Cleveland will improve community trust by developing
better programs to fully engage the community. They will
greatly expand their witness/victim protection program by
partnering with local organizations to provide these services.
They will provide more training on crime analysis and video
forensics. And they will utilize technology to be a force
multiplier, to offset severe manpower shortages.
