Kyle Melancon

Deputy First Class Kyle Melancon died from complications as the result of contracting COVID-19 in the line of duty while assigned to the Corrections Transportation Division.

Deputy Melancon had served with the Ascension Parish Sheriff's Office for seven years. He is survived by his wife and son.

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.
