Flags to Half Staff

Governor Hassan Directs Flags to Half-Staff in Honor of Dallas Police

CONCORD – Governor Maggie Hassan today directed flags lowered to
half-staff in honor of the Dallas police officers who lost their lives
protecting the rights of their fellow citizens to peacefully protest.

Governor Hassan directed that flags be flown at half-staff until sundown on

Earlier this morning, Governor Hassan issued the following statement:

“Tom and I join all Granite Staters in mourning the brave members of law
enforcement who lost their lives in Dallas protecting the rights of their
fellow citizens to peacefully protest. We pray for the full and swift
recovery of those wounded, and we stand with the family and friends of all
these officers. We must not rest until the perpetrators of this ambush are
brought to justice.

“In the aftermath of last night’s shooting, we also want the
extraordinary members of New Hampshire’s law enforcement community to know
how grateful we are for their service and professionalism – and the
sacrifices their families make – each and every day. You face danger
every single day to keep our families and our communities safe, and we are
profoundly grateful.

“All Americans need to stand together on this terrible morning and make
sure we continue to do so each and every morning. Pictures before the
shootings showed police officers and protesters in Dallas – and in cities
across the country – working peacefully and respectfully together. It was
a reminder of the professionalism, passion and fundamental goodwill of our
law enforcement officers and our citizens.

“As we mourn the death of these officers and grapple with these horrific
events, we must re-commit ourselves to being there for the people of
Dallas, to being there for each other, and to building bridges of respect
and compassion in every community that will help keep us all safe.”
