Spokane Mayor David Condon has ordered flags at all City facilities to be lowered to half-staff to coincide with Washington Gov. Jay Inslee’s directive that state and U.S. flags at all state agency facilities be lowered on Tuesday, July 31, in remembrance of Kent Police Officer Diego Moreno.

“The Spokane community sends its deepest sympathies to Officer Diego Moreno’s family and the Kent Police Department,” said Mayor Condon. “We encourage anyone with a flag outside their home or business to join us in this recognition to honor his memory.”

Officer Moreno was killed in the line of duty on Sunday, July 22. A memorial service for Officer Moreno will be held Tuesday, July 31, at 1 p.m., at accesso ShoWare Center, 625 W. James Street, Kent, Washington.
