Flags at government buildings in Missouri to be at half-staff on May 15 for Peace Officers Memorial Day

Jefferson City – The flags of the United States and the State of Missouri at all government buildings in Missouri will be flown at half-staff from sunrise to sunset on Thursday (May 15) in honor of Missouri’s Peace Officers Memorial Day, so designated by a 1996 state law. The day commemorates the sacrifices of the federal, state, county and municipal peace officers who have been killed or disabled in the performance of their duties.

“This is another way in which we can honor those Missouri law enforcement officers who have made the ultimate sacrifice as they protected our safety,” Gov. Nixon said. “When Missourians see the lowered flags on Thursday, it will serve as a reminder of the courage and selflessness of those who guard our safety every day.”
