Lieutenant Leslie Lentz died from complications as the result of contracting COVID-19 in a presumed exposure while on duty at the Ozark Correctional Center in Fordland, Missouri.

Lieutenant Lentz had served with the Missouri Department of Corrections for 23 years. He is survived by his 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.
