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 public facilities be lowered today in remembrance of the five U.S. Capitol Police and Metropolitan Police officers who lost their lives on and after January 6, 2021, and over 100 who were injured.

“On the one year anniversary of the violence at the U.S. Capitol we remember the five officers who lost their lives,” said Mayor Woodward. “We encourage anyone with a flag outside of their home or business to join us in this recognizing these officers.”

Flags will remain lowered until sundown.
