Police Officer Hector Moya died from complications as the result of contracting COVID-19 in the line of duty.

Officer Moya had served with the Newark Police Department for 22 years.

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.
