“She passed away over the weekend after a surgery related to an on-duty traffic collision that occurred in 2015,” according to the LAPD. “She joined the department in 2008 and was a valued member of Pacific Division, where she worked in a variety of assignments. Her commitment to her follow officers and this department is only eclipsed by the love she had for her family.”

Police said Ramirez was driving a patrol car when it was struck by another vehicle.

Ramirez is survived by her three adult children.
