DALLAS — An officer who had been with the Dallas Police Department for 32 years has died of COVID-19 complications, officials said Friday.

Police said officer Scott Harn died on Nov. 2. He was assigned to the department's open records unit.

A funeral will be held on Monday, Nov. 8 and will be livestreamed on the Dallas Police Department's Facebook page starting at 2 p.m.

Harn is the latest in recent COVID-19 deaths among emergency responders and law enforcement throughout North Texas.

Another Dallas officer, senior corporal Arnulfo Pargas, died recently in September after a months-long battle with COVID-19. He had been with the department for two decades.

The Haltom City Police Department announced the death of one of its officers, Kris Hutchison, on Oct. 27. Police said he was in an ICU for four weeks with COVID-19.

A week before Hutchison's death, the Grand Prairie Police Department said 22-year veteran Andy MacDonald died of COVID-19 complications.
