Flags to Fly at Half-Staff on Peace Officers Memorial Day

News Release from Office of the Governor

HONOLULU – In recognition of Peace Officers Memorial Day, Gov. Neil Abercrombie has ordered that all State of Hawaii flags be flown at half-staff alongside the flags of the United States at state offices and agencies as well as the Hawaii National Guard from sunrise to sunset on Wednesday, May 15, 2013.

“The people of Hawaii will join the nation in recognizing all state, county and federal law enforcement officers who protect us in our daily lives, often putting their own safety and well-being at risk,” Gov. Abercrombie said. “Together with Police Week, this observance also serves as a reminder of the importance of every citizen doing his or her part, remaining vigilant against all forms of crime and acts of violence, and working with law officials in this shared responsibility toward a safe society.”

President Barack Obama has proclaimed May 15, 2013, as “Peace Officers Memorial Day” and May 12 through May 18, 2013, as “Police Week.” The President also called upon all governors of the United States and the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, officials of the other territories subject to the jurisdiction of the United States, and appropriate officials of all units of government, to direct that the U.S. flag be flown at half-staff on Peace Officers Memorial Day, and encouraged all Americans to display the flag at half-staff from their homes and businesses on that day.
