In response to the recent reports that the unions of police and paramedics will not hold the flag for the national anthem at Sunday’s Browns game, Cleveland Chief of Police Calvin D. Williams issued an official statement on Monday.
Here’s a sample:
Moving forward, I can tell you that we within the Cleveland Division of Police are in communication with the Cleveland Browns Organization as we have been in the past. We want to hear from our players, the fans and our citizens of this great city. We want to bridge the gap. We want to talk.
I look forward to a continued partnership with our CLEVELAND athletes, our community and a great BROWNS season!!!
