Iowa peace officer memorial

Flags at half staff

MASON CITY, Iowa – It’s a day of remembrance for those who have died in the line of duty.

Across Iowa, flags are being lowered to half staff to remember peace officers who have died on the job.

Governor Terry Branstad attended a memorial at the capitol to honor four officers who died this year.

Law enforcement officers are also remembering in our area.

“Well its very humbling it makes us realize that our job is dangerous even in North Iowa and I think its very important to have a memorial like this that we can remember not only those who lost their life but also the families and survivors of the deceased,” said Sheriff Kevin Pals with Cerro Gordo County.

Pals says no one has died while on duty in Cerro Gordo County.

Flags will be flown to half staff all of next week.
