Ohio flags flown at half staff for Peace Officers Memorial Day and National Police Week

Ohio Governor Mike DeWine has ordered that flags in the state be flown at half staff to honor Peace Officers Memorial Day and National Police Week.

Per an order from Governor Mike DeWine, flags in Ohio are being flown at half staff on Friday to honor Peace Officers Memorial Day and National Police Week.

Flags are to be flown at half staff at all public buildings and grounds throughout the state from sunrise to sunset on May 15, 2020.

Last week, President Donald Trump proclaimed May 15 Peace Officers Memorial Day and May 10-16 National Police Week. In addition to asking that all flags be flown at half staff, Trump said that the White House will be lit blue and encouraged all Americans to display the flag from their homes and businesses on Friday.
