Editor's note: This is a letter to the editor from the Wauwatosa Peace Officers' Association.
On behalf of the Wauwatosa Peace Officers’ Association, which represents the police officers and detectives of Wauwatosa, we would like to extend a heartfelt "Thank you" to the greater Wauwatosa community.
After Officer Jen Sebena’s death on Christmas Eve, Dec. 24, 2012, the gracious outpouring of support from the community was humbling and nothing short of remarkable.
Clearly, her kind and caring spirit lives on, as witnessed by the support offered by residents, businesses and area law enforcement officers.
The WPOA would like to thank:
Those who brought in food to get us through long work hours in the first weeks of the investigation...
Those who gave donations to Jen’s memorial fund...
Those who sent cards and offered prayers of hope and encouragement...
Those officers from several local jurisdictions who helped us cope with, and investigate, the death of one of our own...
Those officers from several local jurisdictions who patrolled the streets of Wauwatosa to allow us to bury and say goodbye to Jen with full police honor.
Sometimes out of tragedy comes the opportunity to see the good in the world; the men and women of the WPOA thank the community for the tremendous goodness you showed to Jen’s family and to us, her law enforcement family.
For the WPOA,
WPOA – President
