Robert Van Zeyl

Lieutenant Robert Van Zeyl died from complications as the result of contracting COVID-19 in the line of duty.

Lieutenant Van Zeyl had served with the Suffolk County Police Department for almost 36 years and was assigned to the 2nd Precinct. He is survived by his two 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.
