Flags set to Fly at Half Staff to Honor Law Enforcement

Flags are set to fly at half staff later this week to honor law enforcement officers who have made the ultimate sacrifice.

Tuesday, May 15 is National Peace Officers Memorial Day and is one of only two days during the year where all government agencies, businesses, and residents are directed to fly flags at half staff. The other day is Memorial Day.

The names of over 100 law enforcement officers who died in the line of duty in 2017 as well as over 200 who died in prior years will be added to over 21,000 on the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial in Washington DC tonight (Sunday) as part of the 30th annual Candlelight Vigil.
