A Note About Contacting the Monitoring Team

If you are experiencing an emergency, need to report a crime, or need law enforcement assistance, you should call 9-1-1 or contact the CPD directly.

The Monitor does not, and cannot, investigate individual incidents or events. If the comments that you share with us suggest the possibility of officer misconduct, the Monitoring Team has an obligation to forward them to the Office of Professional Standards (OPS) for review and potential investigation.  

The Monitoring Team cannot specifically respond to all comments or views received. This does not mean, however, that the Monitoring Team is not closely reviewing all community input received here – it is.


The  Monitoring Team maintains two offices in Cleveland.  One is on the ground floor of a major community organization.  The other is within the Division of Police itself.
