[ARCHIVED] Lowered Flags, Flashing Lights Honor Fallen Deputy


Governor Greg Abbott ordered Texas flags across the state to be lowered to half-staff today, in conjunction with the funeral of Harris County Deputy Sheriff Darren Goforth. Texas flags should return to full-staff at sunrise on Saturday, September 5, 2015. Individuals, businesses, municipalities, and other political subdivisions and entities are encouraged to fly their flags at half-staff for the same length of time as a sign of honor and respect.

The order follows Governor Abbott’s call for law enforcement officers across the state to honor Deputy Goforth and all those who wear the uniform by activating their red and blue lights for one minute at 11 a.m. on Friday, the moment Deputy Goforth’s memorial service in Houston is set to begin.
