Police Officer Memorial Day Commemorated
Governor David Ige announced that flags will fly at half-staff in recognition of Peace Officers Memorial Day and Police Week on Friday.
All national and state flags will be lowered until sundown, under the direction of President Barrack Obama.
“On Peace Officers Memorial Day and during Police Week, we recognize all those who have dedicated their lives to this vital task. With heavy hearts, we mourn the heroes taken from us only because they chose to serve, and we rededicate ourselves to carrying forward their noble legacy,” President Obama said in his Presidential Proclamation.
Flags will fly at half-staff as the nation remembers and honors the men and women who dedicated their lives to maintaining public safety and holding accountable those who break the law.
