PHOENIX (AP) - Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer has ordered that state flags be flown at half-staff Wednesday in honor of fallen law enforcement officers.
Brewer's office released a statement in which the governor notes that Wednesday is National Peace Officers Memorial Day.
The statement urges Arizonans to join Brewer in honoring fallen officers and says their "service and sacrifice will never be forgotten."
Funeral services for an Arizona Department of Public Safety officer killed May 6 in an accident on Interstate 8 are being held Wednesday in Yuma.
Officer Tim Huffman had responded to an accident on May 6 when a tanker truck smashed into his vehicle.
A Yuma man faces charges in connection with the crash, including one count of manslaughter.
