Richard Paul Brown

Sergeant Paul Brown died from complications as the result of contracting COVID-19 while on duty.

Sergeant Brown had served with the Fresno Police Department for 28 years and was assigned to the Central District. He is survived by his wife and three children.

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.
