Flags lowered to honor peace officers in NC

Posted: Updated:
GREENVILLE, N.C. - Flags across our state were lowered Thursday in recognition of Peace Officer Memorial Day.

Peace Officer Memorial Day and Police Week pay tribute to the local, state, and federal officers who have died in the line of duty.
     
Governor Pat McCrory is encouraging all citizens to display flags at half-staff at their homes and businesses.
     
The events also draw 25,000 to 40,000 law enforcement officers and their families to Washington, D.C. every year.
