After transferring in 2005 to the Training Academy’s personnel office, where she worked five years, she was promoted to sergeant and transferred to the Administrative Investigation Unit and later to the Office of Special Operations, Capitol Operations at the Statehouse.
Lt. Clemens began her assignment at the Marysville Post in 2012.
Lt. Raines, who transferred to Marysville from the Training Academy, replaced Lt. Rick Zwayer in November 2011.
