Raymond Andrew Boseman

Reserve Captain Raymond Boseman died after contracting COVID-19 as the result of a presumed exposure during Mardi Gras.

Captain Boseman supervised the busy intersection of Poydras Street and St. Charles Avenue, known as the "Cross-Over." He interacted with thousands of Mardi Gras participants during the detail from February 14th, 2020, to February 25th, 2020. He and two other officers assigned to the same location were diagnosed with COVID-19 following the conclusion of festivities.

Captain Boseman had served with the New Orleans Police Department's Reserve Division for 35 years. He is survived by his wife, two children, six grandchildren, and three great-grandchildren.

In early 2020, thousands of law enforcement officers and other first responders throughout the country contracted COVID-19 during the worldwide pandemic due to requirements of their job. Many of these first responders died as a result of COVID-19.
