[ARCHIVED] Flags Flown at Half Staff for Peace Officers Memorial Day

American Flag at half-staff

Flags at City of Allen facilities will be flown at half-staff today in honor of the National Peace Officers Memorial Day. 

For generations, the brave women and men of our Nation’s law enforcement have answered the call to serve and protect our communities. Enduring long shifts in dangerous and unpredictable circumstances, our Nation’s peace officers embody the courage and honor that represent the best of America. On Peace Officers Memorial Day, we express our gratitude for the selfless public servants who wear the badge and put themselves in harm’s way to keep us safe, and we pay respect for those who lost their lives in the line of duty.

The half-staff order from President Donald J. Trump will expire at sunset on Monday, May 15. All agencies, political subdivisions, and public and private entities are encouraged to follow this order and fly all flags at half-staff during this period.
