Governor Jim Justice has ordered all United States and West Virginia flags at the Capitol Complex and state-owned facilities in West Virginia to be displayed at half-staff from midnight until sunset on Wednesday, May 15 in honor of Peace Officers Memorial Day, which is part of National Police Week in West Virginia.

The governor said the members of West Virginia's law enforcement play an essential role in safeguarding our rights and freedoms. It's crucial to acknowledge and respect the immense responsibilities of these men and women who courageously put their lives on the line to provide this public service.
