In light of a recent attack on an unarmed, unsuspecting teen, Cleveland's Public Square is getting a security boost.
Ladies and gents meandering around the square on their lunch hour will have to weave through not one, not two, but three types of officials.
Cleveland police, RTA police, and school district officers will be a city center mainstay until the after-school shenanigans start simmering down.
Folks may also notice an increase in pony patrol and officers with dogs in the downtown.
So, behave yourselves out there, Cleveland, and do watch where you step in the upcoming weeks.
