Lincoln, NE ( - Gov. Dave Heineman reminds Nebraskans that U.S. and Nebraska flags will be flown at half-staff on Tuesday,
May 15 in observance of Peace Officers' Memorial Day. President Barack Obama is expected to sign a proclamation ordering flags to be flown at half-staff

In 1994, a federal law was enacted encouraging the American flag to be lowered to half-staff every May 15 in remembrance of the more than 19,000 law

In Nebraska, 134 officers have lost their lives in the line of duty since 1866. Those who have made the ultimate sacrifice include federal, state, county,
municipal and tribal agency officers, as well as railroad, game and parks, and correctional officers.
