About the Officer Jason D. West Memorial Fund

On May 26, 2007, Officer Jason D. West, a member of the Cleveland Heights Police Department, lost his life while responding to a disturbance call. A fund has been set up as a way of honoring Officer West’s memory.


If you are a cadet currently enrolled in the Cleveland Heights Police Academy, you may qualify for a scholarship to help with re-imbursement of tuition costs.


We rely on donations and fundraising events to support our scholarship recipients. All donations are tax-exempt and go directly to a qualified cadet upon graduation from the Cleveland Heights Police Academy.
