CHARLESTON, WV — Gov. Jim Justice has ordered all United States and West Virginia flags at the Capitol Complex and state-owned facilities in West Virginia to be displayed at half-staff from midnight until sunset on Wednesday, May 15, 2024, in honor of Peace Officers Memorial Day, which is part of National Police Week in West Virginia.
