RE:                  Flags at Half-Staff for Peace Officers Memorial Day

On May 11, 2018, as a mark of respect and appreciation for our hardworking law enforcement, President Donald J. Trump issued a Proclamation recognizing May 15, 2018 as Peace Officers Memorial Day and recognizing May 13 through May 19, 2018 as Police Week. President Donald J. Trump has directed all flags to be lowered to half-staff from sunrise to sunset on Tuesday, May 15, 2018. Pursuant to the Presidential Proclamation, I hereby direct the flags of the United States and the State of Florida to be flown at half-staff at all local and state buildings, installations, and grounds throughout the State of Florida in honor of Peace Officers Memorial Day. The flags shall be lowered to half-staff effective from sunrise to sunset on Tuesday, May 15, 2018.
