On Monday, Utah State University hosted an annual flag ceremony in recognition of National Police Week. The ceremony included the USU Police Department, Logan Police Department, Cache County Sheriff’s Office, among other USU departments and community members. In recognition of fallen officers, the flags were hoisted to full-staff, and then lowered to half-staff, which was then followed by a 21-gun salute and a playing of taps.

According to the White House, “by a joint resolution approved October 1, 1962, as amended (76 Stat. 676), and by Public Law 103-322, as amended (36 U.S.C. 136-137), the President has been authorized and requested to designate May 15 of each year as ‘Peace Officers Memorial Day’ and the week in which it falls as ‘Police Week.’”
