SHEBOYGAN, WI (WHBL) - A Sheboygan Police Detective has been named “Woman Police Officer of the Year." Tamara Remington received the honor from the Wisconsin Association of Women Police during an event in Madison last Friday. She said it was an honor to be given this award and sharing it with Jennifer Sabena, who was killed by her husband while on duty last December.
Remington began her career with the San Jose Police Department and then came to Sheboygan in 2004. She said she is impressed with how the department works with the community on how to remedy problems before they become a bigger issue.
Since being promoted to detective in March of 2012, she has worked on several high profile cases involving human trafficking, homicide, and bank robbery. Some of these cases have been adopted by the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Milwaukee for federal prosecution. Her involvement with the Jason Guidry arrest in August of last year led to the first ever acceptance of a human trafficking case by the federal government which was led by a Sheboygan County officer.
