Christopher Lynn Elder

Police Officer Christopher Elder died of complications as the result of contracting COVID-19 in a confirmed exposure while on duty at the Milford Police Department.

Officer Elder had served with the Milford Police Department for eight years. He is survived by his three children and sister.

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.
