A funeral service is being held Thursday morning at Forest Lawn Hollywood Hills - Hall of Liberty Mosaic Deck for LAPD Officer Valentin Martinez.
Martinez is the department's first sworn LAPD officer to die from COVID-19.
He was 45 years old. He has a domestic partner who is pregnant with twins.
In a previous story, KNX reporter Claudia Peschiutta reported that LAPD Chief Michel Moore said an LAPD officer has died of COVID-19. Moore says Officer Valentin Martinez had been sick since May.
Martinez, a 13-year LAPD veteran, was assigned to the Mission area. Martinez was 45-years-old. He is the second LAPD employee to die of COVID-19. A senior detention officer died earlier this month.
