Officer Daniel J. Daly, died on Nov. 15 at the age of 48 after he contracted COVID-19 in the line of duty, the governor's executive order said. Daly became an officer in Beloit in 1997, later becoming a field training officer. He also worked for police in Illinois and for private security companies.

“Dan dedicated more than two decades of his life to selflessly serving the people of this state, and Kathy and I extend our deepest sympathies to his family, the Beloit Police Department, and all those who knew and loved him,” Evers said in a statement.

Daly is survived by a wife and two sons, the governor's executive order said.

Another member of Wisconsin law enforcement, State Patrol trooper Dan Stainbrook, also died from COVID-19 complications earlier this month.
