Nebraska Gov. Ricketts Directs Flags to Fly at Half-Staff to Honor Fallen Police Officer Mario Herrera

LINCOLN, NE (STL.News) Today, Governor Pete Ricketts ordered flags to fly at half-staff to honor the passing of Lincoln Police Department Investigator Mario Herrera.

“Susanne and I were devastated to learn of the passing of Investigator Mario Herrera,” said Gov. Ricketts.  “Investigator Herrera’s service and sacrifice will never be forgotten.  I also want to thank people across the state who stepped up to support the Herrera family in the midst of this terrible tragedy.  From holding prayer vigils to donating blood, the community’s response was powerful and inspiring.  Now more than ever, it is critical for all of us to come together and support the men and women who put on the uniform and risk their lives every day to help keep our communities safe.”

Flags will fly at half-staff starting immediately and until sunset on September 11, 2020, which is Patriot Day.  Flags flying at half-staff on Friday will also honor the victims of the September 11, 2001 terror attacks.
