The Effects of COVID on Law Enforcement

Beginning in early 2020, thousands of law enforcement officers and other first responders throughout the country began to contract COVID-19 during the worldwide pandemic. Due to the nature of their job, law enforcement officers were required to work and interact with the community even as the majority of the country was self-quarantined. As a result, hundreds of officers died from COVID-related illnesses and other complications.

Corrections agencies, in particular, suffered tremendous losses due to the constant and close proximity between the corrections officers and large inmate populations. Since March 2020, ODMP has verified that over 900 law enforcement officers have died as the result of a confirmed or presumed exposure while on duty and continues to work with hundreds of other agencies that have suffered a COVID-related death.

Our year of firsts is almost over. We will celebrate your homecoming on the 18th. My heart feels like it was last week. There will never be anyone like you. No one will ever be able to take your place in my life. The sun shines a little brighter but not as bright as when you were here. I know that you have beautiful spot in heaven. One day we will be together again and my tears will be no more.
