Operation We Are CLE

The Cleveland Division of Police - in partnership with county, state and federal law enforcement - announced June 13 some of the successes of Operation We Are CLE. The collaborative effort is a hyper-focused approach to fight crime, take violent criminals off the streets and make Cleveland neighborhoods safer. Since the implementation of Operation We Are CLE, targeted areas have seen reduction in violent crimes, including homicides.

“I want to express to the community at large that if we just rely on law enforcement to solve the problems we have around crime, particularly violent crimes, that we would not be successful. This has to be an entire community effort,” said Mayor Frank G. Jackson. “Everything from the business community to the religious community to education to all the aspects to all the pillars of our society to ensure that we do put those who need to be in jail in jail, that we do arrest those that need to be arrested but also deal with those underlying causes as to why people engage in criminal activity."
