Adam Webb became a full-time officer with the department in December 2014 and was working as a field training officer when he got sick.

Daytona Beach PD says he died at 11:29 a.m. Wednesday  at AdventHealth Palm Coast with his wife by his side.

A Gofundme page has been set up to help the family with expenses.

Webb is the first Daytona Beach officer to die from COVID-19, but law enforcement agencies in Florida have been hit hard by the pandemic.
