In recognition of President Obama’s designation of May 15th as national Peace Officers Memorial Day, Governor Pat McCrory ordered all US and North Carolina flags to be lowered to half-staff from sunrise to sunset on Thursday, May 15th. The Governor encourages all citizens to display flags at half-staff at their homes and businesses that day as well.
“Law enforcement officials in North Carolina prove time and time again that the safety of our citizens is their first priority,” said Governor McCrory. “We are so grateful for the bravery they show every day and the sacrifices so many have made, especially on this Peace Officer Memorial Day.”
