Flags lowered for fallen Detroit officer

Gov. Rick Snyder has ordered U.S and Michigan flags to be lowered to half-staff on Friday, Feb. 2, on all state buildings and within the state Capitol complex in honor of Detroit Police Officer Glenn Doss, Jr., who was killed in the line of duty Sunday, Jan. 28.

“Glenn was a young, devoted police officer and will be deeply missed. Sue and I send our most sincere condolences to his family, friends, and colleagues during this time,” Snyder said.

Doss served two years with the Detroit Police Department.

A service in his honor will be held Friday, Feb. 2, at 11 a.m. at Greater Grace Church, 23500 W. Seven Mile Road in Detroit.

This flag order is in accordance with Executive Order 2013-10. Michigan residents, businesses, schools, local governments and other organizations are encouraged to display the flag at half-staff. Flags should be returned to full staff on Saturday, Feb.3.

When flown at half-staff or half-mast, the U.S. flag should be hoisted first to the peak for an instant and then lowered to the half-staff or half-mast position. The flag should again be raised to the peak before it is lowered for the day.
