National memorial board moves up consideration of slain officer Sebena to next week

MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - The head of the Wisconsin police officers’ union says it’s tremendous that a panel will decide next week whether to include a slain Wauwatosa officer on a national police memorial.

The memorial board’s said last week it needed more information – and it would take a year to decide whether to add Jennifer Sebena’s name.

But Monday, we learned that the board has moved up its consideration to next Wednesday. Jim Palmer of the Wisconsin Professional Police Association said it was the direct result of outrage over an earlier decision to leave Sebena’s name off.

The 30-year-old Sebena was shot to death during her work shift in Wauwatosa last Christmas Eve. Her husband has pleaded insanity to killing her – and the memorial had said Sebena should not be included because she was a victim of domestic violence.

The police union came up with similar cases in which officers were included.

Governor Scott Walker and the state’s attorney general are among those saying Sebena should be honored. Almost 15,000 people have agreed by signing an online petition.
