Harold Paul "Skip" Smith, Sr.

Corrections Officer IV Harold Smith died from complications as the result of contracting COVID-19 during an outbreak among employees and inmates at the Jordan Unit in Pampa, Texas.

Officer Smith had served with the Texas Department of Criminal Justice for 5-1/2 years.

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.
