Roberto Rodríguez-Hernández

First Lieutenant Roberto Rodríguez-Hernández died as the result of complications after contracting COVID-19 while on duty.

Lieutenant Rodríguez-Hernández had served with the Puerto Rico Police Department for over 33 years and was the commander of the Río Grande District. He is survived by his wife, daughter, and two sons.

Beginning 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 have died as a result of COVID-19, and continue to do so as the virus spreads across the United States.

Que Descanse en Paz Tnte. Rodriguez. Pertenecía a la misma area de trabajo donde yo trabajo, no tuve el honor de ser su subalterna pero era pro policia ante todos. Nos sorprendió su muerte. Que descanse en paz y fortaleza a su familia.
