Sergeant Jamusca Britten January 2021 Member of the Month
The Black Shield Police Association
Sergeant Jamusca Britten began her career with the Cleveland Division of Police in the 109th Academy Class. After serving in the original 3rd District on Payne Avenue, Sgt. Britten earned her first detail in the ROPE Unit (Repeat Offender Program Enforcement) in 1997, led by then Sgt. Marvin Cross.
Shortly thereafter, Sgt. Britten was assigned to the citywide specialized unit known as the Street Crime Strike Force Unit (SCSF). The opportunity to become a detective was humbling. She was later asked to join the Fugitive Unit by Sgt. Cross.
Sgt. Britten made the easy transition back to patrol after massive layoffs in 2004. Often referring to basic patrol as the "heart of this department", Sgt. Britten thrived as she took on additional roles throughout the years.
Sgt. Britten has served as an OPOTA guest instructor, 4th District school resource officer, and served in the 4th District Det. Bureau, Vice Unit and CSU. After being promoted to Sergeant in 2020, Sgt. Britten now serves in the 5th District.
Sgt. Jamusca Britten is recognized as the BSPA's Officer of the Month for January 2021 - we are proud of her accomplishments today and each day.
