half mast flags

In accordance with a proclamation by President Donald J. Trump, Gov. Matt Bevin has ordered both American and state flags at public office buildings be lowered to half-staff on Wednesday in observance of Peace Officers Memorial Day.

"Law enforcement officers protect and serve the lives in their communities; they are often the heroes among us," said Bevin.  "There is no greater sacrifice than that of a person willing to lay down their life for another, and we are deeply grateful for those who have served and sacrificed so much on our behalf."

All individuals, businesses, organizations, and government agencies are encouraged to join in this tribute of lowering the flag in honor of local, state, and federal peace officers who have died or been disabled in the line of duty.
