Flags to fly half staff Wednesday across KS

(KAIR)--Flags across Kansas, Wednesday, will fly at half-staff in honor of Peace Officers Memorial Day.

According to a release, the directive was made Monday by Kansas Governor Laura Kelly, with the release explaining that "Peace Officers Memorial Day pays tribute to local, state, and federal peace officers who have died or been disabled in the line of duty."

Kelly, in the release, say the day serves as a time to recognize the sacrifices of Kansas law enforcement officers, who daily "put their lives on the line," with Kelly adding "their courage and commitment will never be forgotten.”

Flags across Kansas will be flown at half-staff for recognition of the day from sunup to sundown Wednesday.
