Lansing, Mich. - Gov. Rick Snyder has ordered U.S. flags within the State Capitol Complex to be lowered to half-staff on Thursday, July 7, in recognition of Detroit Police Sergeant Kevin Miller, who died Wednesday, June 29, while on duty.
"Sgt. Miller dedicated much of his life to protecting and serving the citizens of Detroit," Snyder said. "I send my heartfelt condolences to his family, friends and community."
Miller served on the Detroit Police Department for 29 years, and has been a sergeant for the past 16 years. He worked in various capacities throughout his time on the force including patrol, investigative units, and as a recruiter. He received several commendations from the department and was well respected within his community.
Funeral services will take place at 11 a.m. on Thursday, July 7 at the Greater Grace Temple located at 23500 West 7 MileRoad in Detroit.
This flag order is in accordance with Executive Order 2013-10. Michigan residents, businesses, schools, local governments and other organizations also are encouraged to display the flag at half-staff. Flags should be returned to full-staff on Friday, July 8.
When flown at half-staff or half-mast, the U.S. flag should be hoisted first to the peak for an instant and then lowered to the half-staff or half-mast position. The flag should again be raised to the peak before it is lowered for the day.
