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 Tuesday, Feb. 8, in remembrance of Vancouver Police Officer Donald Sahota.  

Officer Sahota died in the line of duty on Saturday, Jan. 29. Mayor Woodward encourages anyone with a flag outside of their home or business to join us in this recognition to honor Officer Sahota’s memory.

“Spokane joins Vancouver and the law enforcement community in mourning the loss of Officer Sahota,” Woodward said. “Our thoughts are with his family and the Vancouver Police Department as the state rallies around them.”

A memorial service will take place on Tuesday, Feb. 8, at 1 p.m., at the Ilani Event Center in Ridgefield.
