Today across the nation and here in Maine we will honor police officers who have lost their lives in the line of duty.

Governor LePage has ordered all United States flags and State of Maine flags to be flown at half staff, tomorrow, Thursday, to observe Peace Officers Memorial Day and Police Week, which is observed May 11-17.

Today in Bangor, there was a ceremony open to the public at 9:15am in the police department lobby to unveil two plaques honoring two Bangor Police officers who were killed in the line of duty.

Patrick H. Jordan was killed on March 7th, 1903 and Francis A. Murray lost his life on June 28th, 1950.

After the ceremony the plaques will be on permanent display in the lobby to remind citizens of the officer’s sacrifice.  The Bangor Police Department is located at 240 Main Street, lobby access is gained by entering the Summer Street door.

According to the Officer Down Memorial Page website, since official records have been taken, 86 Maine police officers have passed away in the line of duty.

Thursday is a good day to remember and honor those who protect our well being everyday.
