Gov. Jared Polis ordered flags lowered to half-staff on all public buildings statewide until sunset Wednesday to honor United States Capitol Police officers.
The proclamation honoring United States Capitol Police officers by the President Donald Trump:
“As a sign of respect for the service and sacrifice of United States Capitol Police officers Brian D. Sicknick and Howard Liebengood, and all Capitol Police officers and law enforcement across this great nation, by the authority vested in me as president of the United States by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, I hereby order that the flag of the United States shall be flown at half-staff at the White House and upon all public buildings and grounds, at all military posts and naval stations, and on all naval vessels of the federal government in the District of Columbia and throughout the United States and its territories and possessions until sunset Wednesday. I also direct that the flag shall be flown at half-staff for the same length of time at all United States embassies, legations, consular offices and other facilities abroad, including all military facilities and naval vessels and stations.
“In witness whereof, I have hereunto set my hand this 10th day of January, in the year of our Lord 2021 and of the independence of the United States of America the 245th.”
