Officer Alfonso Murrieta died after contracting COVID-19 in a presumed exposure while on duty at Tucson International Airport in Arizona.

Officer Murrieta volunteered to assist with local policing duties at the airport after an outbreak of COVID-19 amongst members of the Tucson International Airport Police Department disrupted staffing.

Officer Murrieta had served with the United States Customs and Border Protection - Office of Field Operations and the former United States Immigration and Naturalization Service for 32 years. He is survived by his wife and four children.

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.

Al was one of those guys who would walk into a room of strangers and walk out of a room full of friends. I knew and worked with Al 25 years. He is dearly missed.
