Juan Rafael Rivera-Padua

Lieutenant Juan Rivera-Padua died from complications as the result of contracting COVID-19 in the line of duty.

Lieutenant Rivera-Padua had served with the Puerto Rico Police Department for 31 years and was assigned to the San Juan Area Motorized Unit.

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.
