The Cleveland Police Department has been graciously chosen to be represented on CBS’s Lip Sync to the Rescue special. Out of the 30 first responder agencies that were chosen for this special, the Cleveland Police Department is the only agency to represent Tennessee.
No information has been relayed concerning the end of the voting period, however, a recent email from CBS revealed that 1 million votes have already been received to date.
There is no cap on the amount of times a voter can cast a vote, so the CPD is asking their friends, family and brothers and sisters from other agencies to please cast multiple votes. To vote as many times as you want, use the link below:
