6,000 Law Enforcement Officers Protected Cleveland During RNC
Order was maintained and demonstrators remained peaceful during the Republican National Convention in Cleveland last week, thanks to the joint efforts and calm security provided by police officers who came in to help from around the country.
Joining a team of 500 Cleveland police officers were over 2,500 police officers from 13 states, plus 3,000 federal law enforcement officers, who all worked together to provide top security for the event, reported Breitbart.
Except for one protest that shut down an entrance gate for about 30 minutes, and a few minor incidents, the city remained calm and orderly. There were no riots, no shootings, no violence, and only 24 misdemeanor arrests.
The mayor and the police chief released a joint statement:
“By working together to bridge gaps and come together as one, we are rewriting the narrative of law enforcement and community relations in this great nation. We want this memory to stay in our minds and in our hearts. As a community, we have shown the world over and over how great this city on the lake is. Today, as always, we are proud to be Clevelanders.”
Trump personally called the Cleveland Chief of Police to thank him and his team for the security they provided for the event.
The Cleveland Police issued this video message thanking all those who supported law enforcement officerse during the event:
The following video released by the Cleveland Police shows what a massive joint operation this was.
