Wayne Douglas Snyder

Special Agent Wayne Snyder died from complications as the result of contracting COVID-19 in the line of duty.

Special Agent Snyder had served with the Georgia Department of Corrections for seven years and was assigned to the Office of Professional Standards. He had previously served with the Georgia Department of Juvenile Justice for one year after retiring from the Atlanta Police Department with 30 years of service. He is survived by his wife, daughter, and two sons.

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.
