Sgt. Tamara Hardin was an Officer of the Month in 2016 for the arrest of an armed and dangerous suspect.

A veteran Jacksonville police officer is facing two felony charges and will likely lose her job after she was accused of passing information from a confidential law enforcement database to a family friend.

Sgt. Tamara Hardin, 43, a 17-year veteran of the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office, is charged with one count of disclosure of confidential criminal justice information and one count of offenses against users of computers, according to WJCT News partner News4Jax.

Both are third-degree felonies.

Undersheriff Pat Ivey said Hardin, who was arrested and booked into the Duval County Jail on Tuesday morning, opted not to resign, but he said JSO will move to terminate her employment because she is facing felony charges.
