Indians host Law Enforcement Appreciation Night Friday, including South Euclid officer, Akron/Columbus departments

The Cleveland Indians will honor South Euclid patrolman Steve Wilson as part of the club's Law Enforcement Night on September 11.

The night will feature a short introduction regarding the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund (NLEOMF) and Museum honoring the victims of 9/11/2001. After, a ceremonial first pitch will be tossed from Patrolman Steve Wilson of the South Euclid Police Department. Wilson was named National Officer of the Month in August 2015.

Honor Guard duties will be led by the Akron Police Department, with the National Anthem being performed by Detective Regina Dudley of the Columbus Police Department. Clint Eastwood will even get in on the action with a scoreboard PSA.

Established in 1984, the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund is a non-profit organization dedicated to telling the story of American law enforcement and make it safer for those who serve. The Memorial Fund maintains the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial in Washington, DC, which contains the names of 20,538 officers who have died in the line of duty throughout U.S. history. The Memorial Fund is now working to create the National Law Enforcement Museum, which will tell the story of American law enforcement through high-tech, interactive exhibitions, historical artifacts and extensive educational programming.
