The flag-draped casket, carrying the body of 45-year-old Valentin Martinez was taken from Saint John's hospital in Santa Monica to Forest Lawn Memorial park in the Hollywood Hills.
The van was flanked by fellow first responders along the 23-mile route, as they paid their respects.
Officer Martinez was a 13-year veteran of the force. He worked patrol with the Mission division in the San Fernando Valley.
He was the Los Angeles Police Department's LAPD's first sworn officer and second employee overall to die from COVID-19. The department has had more than 450 employees test positive for the virus.
