NORTH MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – North Myrtle Beach Mayor Marilyn Hatley proclaimed that all flags on city buildings will be flown at half-staff on May 15 in recognition of Peace Officers Memorial Day.

The United States Congress and President Obama declared this day Peace Officers Memorial Day in memory of law enforcement officers who have made the ultimate sacrifice in service to their community through courageous deeds. They wish to honor any who have become disabled in the performance of their duty, and to honor all law enforcement officials presently serving the nation's communities.

Mayor Hatley presented the proclamation to a contingent of North Myrtle Beach public safety officers.
