Statement from National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund Chairman & CEO Craig W. Floyd Regarding Wauwatosa (WI) Police Officer Jennifer Sebena
Washington, DC—“Our Board of Directors met today and decided to reconsider an earlier determination by our Names Committee not to include Wauwatosa (WI) Police Officer Jennifer Sebena on the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial.
“We are very sensitive to the unique circumstances of this case and believe that further research and review is warranted. The Memorial Fund will continue to examine and investigate this case in the coming months, and will be reaching out to the Wauwatosa Police Department for further information and assistance.
“A final decision will be made on Officer Sebena’s case no later than early 2014. We regret the delay, but want to make sure that our Board of Directors makes a fully informed and correct decision.”
