Treva Preston

Lieutenant Treva Preston died from complications as the result of contracting COVID-19 during an outbreak among employees and inmates at the Hamilton Unit in Bryan, Texas.

Lieutenant Preston had served with the Texas Department of Criminal Justice for 16 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.

On behalf of my family, I extend our sincerest condolences on the grievous loss you suffered when Treva died in the line of duty.

To the Preston family, fellow officers, and all who call Treva beloved, my heart goes out to all of you and may you find comfort in your loved ones and your strength in your faith. When my son was killed, the entire law enforcement community in our area embraced us in a circle of love and support. I hope that you continue to receive that same kind of support. It makes the unbearable less torturous, and I pray for your solace.

This reflection is sent with the utmost respect for the dedicated service Lt. Preston gave to her community and the residents of Texas and for the supreme sacrifice she and her family made on January 15, 2021
