Sunday night Cleveland Police Chief Calvin Williams issued a statement to the City of Cleveland regarding the police department’s relationship with the Cleveland Browns.

On Saturday, The Cleveland Police Patrolmen’s Association President Steve Loomis told WKYC they will no longer take part in the Browns’ opening day ceremonies on Sept. 10th.

Members of the union had been scheduled to help hold the American flag before the game against the Pittsburgh Steelers, along with military members and other law enforcement officers. After several members of the team decided to kneel during the national anthem prior to a preseason game, however, Loomis and the union decided they would no longer participate, along with Cleveland EMS workers.
