Police officers are coming together Friday morning to march in the Cleveland Police Memorial Parade, which is held to honor those who lost their lives in the line of duty.
We will stream the Cleveland Police Memorial Parade live inside this story. You can also watch on our Facebook or YouTube pages.
The parade will begin at 10:30 a.m. at Lakeside Avenue and E. 12th Street. The route continues along Lakeside Avenue and ends at the Greater Cleveland Peace Officers Memorial.
Parade participants include officers from local, county, state and federal agencies throughout the United States and Canada. Surviving family members of officers “who made the supreme sacrifice” will also participate in the parade, according to the Greater Cleveland Peace Officers Memorial Society.
A memorial service will be held immediately following the parade at Police Memorial Square in Huntington Park. 3News’ Monica Robins will be singing the national anthem at the service, which is expected to begin around 11:30 a.m. We will also stream the memorial service live inside this story.
Friday’s events are part of the 36th Annual Police Memorial Commemoration.
