Third District Police Headquarters and Communications Center Opens with a Community Ceremony

Mayor Frank G. Jackson was joined by Cleveland officials and community members at a ceremony to celebrate the newly constructed Third District Police Headquarters and Communications Center. The three-story, state-of-the-art 61,400-square-foot station on Chester Avenue near East 55th Street is an energy-efficient facility featuring local artwork and a community room for public meetings and events. In remembrance of the City of Cleveland Third District Police Officers killed in the line of duty, the names of the police officers were read and the flags were lowered at the old station (10600 Chester Avenue) and raised at the new location (4501 Chester Avenue) during a community commemorative dedication ceremony.
