June 15-16, 2023 - Half-Staff Alert - New York

Governor Kathy Hochul today announced flags on State buildings will be flown at half-staff on June 15 and 16 in honor of fallen Captain Christopher J. Garrow.

"Captain Christopher J. Garrow was a fearless public servant, who was committed to protecting his community and the State of New York," Governor Hochul said. "Captain Garrow's service and dedication to protecting his fellow New Yorkers will never be forgotten and my heart goes out to his family and loved ones."

On June 12, 2023, Captain Garrow passed away from an illness stemming from his assignment in and around the World Trade Center site following the terrorist attack on September 11, 2001. He has served the New York State Police for 23 years. Captain Garrow is from Peru, New York, CIinton County, and is survived by his wife and two daughters.
