Officer Carlos Mendoza died from complications as the result of contracting COVID-19 in the line of duty at the Pharr Cargo Facility in Pharr, Texas.

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.
