Gov. Tony Evers issued Executive Order # 31, ordering the flag of the United States and the flag of the state of Wisconsin be flown at half-staff as a mark of respect for Patrol Officer John D. Hetland.
Hetland was fatally shot while attempting to stop an armed robbery on June 17. He had served with the Racine Police Department for 24 years.
Flags of the United States and the the state of Wisconsin should be flown at half-staff at all buildings, grounds, and military installations of the state beginning immediately and ending at sunset on the date of interment.
The latest Executive Order #31 is now available online - or at http://dma.wi.gov/DMA (public affairs, flag-lowering orders).
