Senior Corrections Officer Maria Gibbs died from complications as the result of contracting COVID-19 in the line of duty at the Central Reception and Assignment Facility in Trenton.

Officer Gibbs had served with the New Jersey Department of Corrections for 19 years. She is survived by her husband and four 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.
