WASHINGTON D.C. (WISN) - In honor of National Police Week, law enforcement personnel from all across the country are in Washington D.C. this week observing several different events.
On Monday (05/13) thousands honored officers killed in the line of duty. This year, two Wisconsin officers' names were added to the memorial wall. Wauwatosa Police Officer Jennifer Sebena and Milwaukee County Deputy Sergio Aleman were both killed while on duty in 2012.
Friends of Officer Sebena say remember her fondly.
"She was a truly amazing person. She pinned on that badge every day and she served her community. And, just like the other 19,000 officers that are on these walls, they took an oath to serve and protect, and went out and did that," says Detective John Milotzky of the Wauwatosa Police Department.
It took a fight to have Sebena's name added to the memorial, but her friends won that challenge.
