"Fern Capital of the World"

From our Volusia County Sheriff’s Office,  

Captain David Brannon,

In 1962, President Kennedy proclaimed May 15 as National Peace

 Officers Memorial Day and the calendar week in which May 15 falls, as

 National Police Week. Established by a joint resolution of Congress in

 1962, National Police Week pays special recognition to those law

 enforcement officers who have lost their lives in the line of duty for

 the safety and protection of others.

RE:                  Flags at Half-Staff

As a mark of respect for all law enforcement officers who have heroically sacrificed their lives to protect and defend us, and pursuant to a Presidential Proclamation designating May 15, 2015 as Peace Officers Memorial Day, I hereby direct the flags of the United States and the State of Florida to be flown at half-staff at all local and state buildings, installations, and grounds throughout the State of Florida from sunrise to sunset on Friday, May 15, 2015.

 On this day, I call upon all Floridians to honor those who serve in law enforcement and those who have made the ultimate sacrifice with appropriate ceremonies and activities. Further, I encourage all Floridians to display the United States and State of Florida flags at half-staff from their homes and businesses on May I 5, 2015.
