Governor Ducey has ordered that flags at all state office buildings be lowered to half-staff from sunrise until sunset today, Friday, August 12, 2016, in honor of Border Patrol Agent Manuel Alvarez. Agent Alvarez was on duty last night at the Casa Grande station when he was killed in a traffic accident.
The Governor will again order that flags at all state office buildings be lowered to half-staff on the day of his interment. Arrangements are still pending and will be communicated as soon as possible.
Individuals, businesses, and other organizations are encouraged to join in this tribute.
