February 22, 2023 - Half Staff Alert - Washington

I am deeply saddened by the death of Washington State Department of Corrections Correctional Officer Jay Miller, 52, and direct that Washington State and United States flags at all state agency facilities be lowered to half-staff in his memory on Wednesday, February 22, 2023. Officer Miller died in the line of duty on Saturday, February 11, 2023.

Flags should remain at half-staff until close of business or sunset on Wednesday, February 22, 2023. 

Please notify all of your field offices and facilities around the state. 

Other government entities, citizens and businesses are encouraged to join this recognition. 

A memorial service will take place on February 22nd, at The Church for All Nations in Tacoma at 1:00 pm.
