Flags to be Lowered for for Fallen Law Enforcement Officials August 14, 2021

LANSING, Mich. — Governor Whitmer has ordered U.S. and Michigan flags to be lowered to half-staff  throughout the state of Michigan on Saturday, August 14 to honor the lives of law enforcement officials who have died in the line of duty, including those who have died of COVID-19. The flag honors will coincide with the MI-C.O.P.S. Law Enforcement Officers Candlelight Memorial Service.

 

“Michigan’s law enforcement officials will forever be remembered for their bravery, courage, and dedication to our great state,” said Governor Gretchen Whitmer. “Every day, these heroes put their lives on the line to protect the lives of the public, especially during the pandemic, serving at times of great uncertainty. As we remember their lives and legacies, my heart is with the loved ones of these great public servants.”

 

The State of Michigan recognizes the duty, honor, and selfless service of these fallen law enforcement officials by lowering flags to half-staff. Michigan residents, businesses, schools, local governments and other organizations also are encouraged to display the flag at half-staff.

 

To lower flags to half-staff, flags should be hoisted first to the peak for an instant and then lowered to the half-staff position. The process is reversed before the flag is lowered for the day.

 

Flags should be returned to full-staff on Sunday, August 15, 2021 unless otherwise notified.
