RE:               Flags at Half-Staff in Honor of Peace Officers Memorial Day

Peace Officers Memorial Day honors the lives of local, state, and federal officers who have died or become disabled in the line of duty. On May 15, we pay tribute to those officers who have made the ultimate sacrifice to protect the safety and freedoms of Floridians. In 1962, President John F. Kennedy signed a proclamation designating Peace Officers Memorial Day and National Police Week. We will never forget the enduring legacy of law enforcement heroes.

To honor and show gratitude for their service and sacrifice, 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 from sunrise to sunset on Wednesday, May 15, 2024.
