Gov. Brewer orders flags to fly at half-staff

Posted: Updated:

Gov. Jan Brewer has ordered state flags to fly at half-staff from sunrise to sunset in honor of National Peace Officers Memorial Day.

Brewer made the order to honor the service and sacrifice of fallen peace officers not only in Arizona but across the nation.

"This sense of loss is not unique to Arizona. It is a solemn tie that binds us with every community that has lost a member of law enforcement. Together, we are united in always remembering those who gave their lives to protect and serve," said Brewer.

Brewer said it's important to also remember the families who must cope with loss every day.
