The FBI Cleveland Citizens Academy Alumni Association was formed in December 2004.  Our goal is to help build safer communities in the greater Cleveland metropolitan area.  Our mission has the following two pillars: Community Engagement/Awareness and Education/Training.

The FBICLECAAA supports the FBI Community Outreach Team and we have initiated new programs that include supporting the families of Fallen FBI Agents and Cleveland Safety Forces seriously injured in the “Line of Duty”; partial scholarships to some of the TRI-C students attending the Police academy and supporting Cleveland youth programs such as Partnership Schools and Youth Law Enforcement forum. We are a 501-C-3 non-profit that supports local, state, and federal law enforcement agencies.

Fourth Annual “FLAGS FOR HONOR 2023” – Cleveland Public Square

September 8- 11, 2023

More than 700 American flags are on display every year during the Flags for Honor event. This year will be held at Cleveland Public Square on Patriot weekend September 8-11. The annual event honors hundreds of servicemembers, first responders, medical professionals, teachers, and other “loved ones, family, mentors, and friends.”

The money raised from corporate sponsors and individual donors funds community engagement, education programs, and scholarships to TRI-C Police Academy and supports students at Cleveland schools and families of injured Cleveland first responders.
