Reserve Captain Raymond Boseman died after contracting COVID-19 as the result of a presumed exposure during Mardi Gras.

He interacted with thousands of Mardi Gras participants during the detail from February 14th, 2020, to February 25th, 2020. He and two other officers assigned to the same location were diagnosed with COVID-19 following the conclusion of festivities.
