Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen Issues Statement on the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund Deciding to Include Fallen Wauwatosa Police Officer Jennifer Sebena

 

“Officer Sebena is deserving of this and her presence on the memorial will honor her colleagues who have lost their lives and in the line of duty as well as those who continue to put their lives on the line every day.”

 

MADISON — Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen issued the following statement upon learning The National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund decided to add Officer Jennifer Sebena to the Memorial in Washington, DC.

 

“I commend the Memorial Fund for making the right decision.  I believed from the start there was no intention by the Fund to deprecate Officer Sebena’s sacrifice but rather the initial decision to deny her this honor was an oversight.  Officer Sebena is deserving of this and her presence on the memorial will honor her colleagues who have lost their lives and in the line of duty as well as those who continue to put their lives on the line every day.”

 

On March 20, 2013, Van Hollen issued a letter to the Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of The National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund, Mr. Craig W. Floyd, urging him and the Memorial Fund to include Officer Jennifer Sebena on the Memorial in Washington, DC.  A link to the letter is available here.
