In 2002, Lieutenant Ramirez was recognized for her academic excellence in the police academy, which resulted in an immediate transfer to the Road Patrol and completion of the FTO program.  After a short reassignment to Division I Bonds, Lieutenant Ramirez joined the Detroit Police Auto Theft Conspiracy task force in 2003.   Within the task force, Lieutenant Ramirez executed several successful search warrants and made several arrests. Lieutenant Ramirez engaged in the New Jail Transition Team (NJTT) project development and design meetings.  Her wisdom and valued input made it evident that the NJTT would benefit from her knowledge.  In June 2012, Lieutenant Ramirez became the Training Coordinator of the NJTT.  She has attended the Direct Supervision Training in Colorado and is developing a plan to train the police personnel and civilian staff of Wayne County.

The dedication and clear execution of leadership has been the foundation of both Commander Alan Bulifant and Captain Karmen Ramirez promotion.
