Lt. Governor Patrick Orders Texas Flags at Half-Staff in Honor of Dallas Police Officers


AUSTIN – Today, as acting governor, I am directing that the Texas flag be immediately lowered to half-staff in honor of the lives and public service of our slain officers and victims of yesterday’s tragic and senseless event.

I ask that you keep the brave men and women in law enforcement in your thoughts and prayers.
