Dear Mayor Leeser:
In response to your request, and pursuant to Chapter 3100 of the Texas Government Code, flags of the
State of Texas at all buildings, facilities, and offices in the City of El Paso may be lowered immediately
to half-staff in honor of Police Chief Greg Allen, who recently passed away. Flags should return to fullstaff
at sunset on the day of interment.
Individuals, businesses, municipalities, and other political subdivisions and entities in the surrounding
area and region may fly flags at half-staff for the same period as a sign of honor and respect.
The First Lady and I extend our prayers of comfort to the Allen family during their time of grief. I urge
all Texans to remember and honor Chief Allen’s public service to the City of El Paso as a dedicated law
