PHOENIX — Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey ordered flags at half-staff in honor of National Peace Officers Memorial Day.

Flags will be lowered from sunrise to sunset on Saturday.

“Arizona’s peace officers are on the frontlines every day serving our communities, protecting others and putting their lives on the line — and some don’t return home after carrying out their duties,” Ducey said in a press release.

National Peace Officers Memorial Day is on May 15 each year and honors law enforcement officers killed or disabled in the line of duty.

“Arizona is grateful to the heroic men and women who wear the badge, and we honor those who made the ultimate sacrifice,” Ducey said.

“This Peace Officers Memorial Day, we take a moment to pause and remember the officers who died in the line of duty and thank those who bravely protect our communities every day.”
