VICE.com has photographed one of the 2,000 riot suits that the Cleveland Police Department will likely be seen wearing next week during the RNC. VICE wrote that they obtained access to the suits through a source. 

Cleveland.com reported in April that the City of Cleveland would spend upwards of $800,000 on the suits and batons. The suits were to be provided by Kentucky-based Galls, LLC. And the funds were to be reimbursed through the $50 million federal grant intended to cover security costs at the convention.

We’re keeping you informed…
...and it’s what we love to do. From local politics and culture to national news that hits close to home, Scene Magazine has been keeping Cleveland informed for years.

It’s never been more important to support local news sources, especially as we all deal with the ramifications of the coronavirus pandemic. Almost everything Scene is about -- our stories, our events, our advertisers -- comes down to getting together. With events on hold, and no print distribution for the foreseeable future, every little bit helps.

A free press means accountability and a well-informed public, and we want to keep our unique and independent reporting available for many, many years to come.

If quality journalism is important to you, please consider a donation to Scene. Every reader contribution is valuable and so appreciated, and goes directly to support our coverage of critical issues and neighborhood culture. Thank you.
