Change in command staff within the Cleveland Police Dept.

Calvin D. Williams, Chief of the Cleveland Division of Police, announced that current Second District Commander Keith Sulzer will be stepping down from his current position. Commander Sulzer will resume his civil service rank of Captain and be assigned to the Division's Community Policing Unit as Captain and serve as liaison between the Division and the Cleveland Police Foundation.

Cleveland Police Patrolman's Union President Jeff Follmer said, "he's been a great commander. Great for the officers. No way he would've stepped down. He had to be forced out."

Activists meantime have started petitions trying to find a way to keep Sulzer as a commander. Even some councilman have spoken out in support of him.

Commander Thomas Stacho who is currently assigned as Commander of Communications and Property will assume command of the Second District.

These changes in command will take effect Wednesday March 26th, 2014.
