Gov. Josh Green, at the direction of U.S. President Joe Biden, has ordered the U.S. and Hawai‘i state flags to be flown at half-staff from sunrise to sunset Wednesday at all state offices, agencies and facilities in honor of Peace Officers Memorial Day and Police Week.

This action is taken to honor law enforcement officers who lost their lives in the line of duty.

“On this Peace Officers Memorial Day, let us remember and honor the courageous heroes who made the ultimate sacrifice while serving as law enforcement officers,” said Green. “We are grateful for their courage, dedication and selflessness to protect and serve our communities. Their legacies will never be forgotten. Thank you to our law enforcement officers who work tirelessly to ensure the safety of our communities every day.”
