INDIANAPOLIS (WLFI) – Gov. Mike Pence is directing flags statewide be flown at half-staff Thursday in honor of officers lost.

It is Peace Officers Memorial Day, which honors federal, state and local officers killed or disabled in the line of duty.

President Obama signed a proclamation ordering flags nationwide to be flown at half-staff on Thursday. Flags should be flown at half-staff from sunrise until sunset.

Pence also asks businesses and residents to lower their flags to pay tribute to the brave men and women in law enforcement across Indiana and our nation.
