WAUWATOSA, Wis (WSAU) - Her fellow Wauwatosa police described Jennifer Sebena as a hard worker and spiritual person who quickly earned their trust.
Hundreds of Wisconsin police officers were in the big crowd paying their respects to Sebena yesterday. She was killed while on patrol last week. Her husband, Ben, has been arrested and charged with her murder. Officers from neighboring cities covered work shifts so Wauwatosa police colleagues could attend the services.
Sebena was in her second year with the Wauwatosa department. Chief Barry Weber remember her as everything he could hope for in a young officer, saying she was, quoting here, “intelligent, energetic, willing to be of service and wanting to be a great police officer.” Flags across the state were set at half-staff in her memory.
