Half-Staff Alert - February 2, 2020 through the Day of Interment
For Texas Only

In response to your request and pursuant to Chapter 3100 of the Texas Government Code and Title 4 of the U.S. Code (4 U.S.C. ยง 1 et seq), flags of the State of Texas and the United States of America in the City of Corpus Christi may be lowered immediately to half-staff in honor of the life and public service of Corpus Christi Police Officer Alan McCollum who was killed in the line of duty during a routine traffic stop. Flags may remain at half-staff until the end of the day of his final interment. Flags should return to full-staff the following day. Other cities, counties, and political subdivisions may also lower flags during the same period of time.

The first lady and I extend our prayers of comfort to the McCollum family during their time of grief. I urge all Texans to remember and honor the public service of Officer McCollum to the United States as a highly decorated Army veteran and to the State of Texas as a brave and distinguished peace officer.



**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.
