Spokane Mayor Nadine Woodward has ordered flags at all City facilities to be lowered to half-staff to coincide with Governor Jay Inslee’s directive that state and U.S. flags at all state agency facilities be lowered on Wednesday, July 7, in remembrance of Stafford Creek Correctional Officer Gabriel Forrest.

Officer Forrest died in the line of duty on Thursday, June 17. Mayor Woodward encourages anyone with a flag outside of their home or business to join us in this recognition to honor Officer Forrest’s memory.

A memorial service will take place on Wednesday, July 7, at 11 a.m., at the Olympic Stadium in Hoquiam.
