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 Friday, March 25, in remembrance of Pierce County Deputy Sheriff Dominique (Dom) Calata.

Deputy Calata died in the line of duty on Wednesday, March 16. Mayor Woodward encourages anyone with a flag outside of their home or business to join us in this recognition to honor Deputy Calata’s memory.

“Spokane joins Pierce County and the law enforcement community in mourning the loss of Deputy Calata,” Woodward said. “Our thoughts are with his family and the Pierce County Sheriff’s Department as the state rallies around them.”

A memorial service will take place on Friday, March 25, at 1 p.m., at the Church for all Nations in Tacoma.
