Updated: May 14, 2013 10:10PM



INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Gov. Mike Pence is directing flags at state facilities across Indiana be flown at half-staff Wednesday in honor of Peace Officers Memorial Day.

The day honors federal, state and local officers killed or disabled in the line of duty.

President Obama signed a proclamation ordering flags nationwide to be flown at half-staff on Wednesday. Flags should remain at half-staff until sunrise on Thursday.

Pence also asks businesses and residents to lower their flags to half-staff to pay tribute to the men and women in law enforcement across Indiana and the nation.
