DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Some flags in Des Moines will soon be flown at half-staff to honor Iowa police officers killed in the line of duty.

Gov. Terry Branstad has ordered all flags on the Capitol complex to be flown at half-staff Friday in observance of the Iowa peace officer memorial ceremony. The annual event will be held Friday morning at a designated memorial monument near the building that houses the Iowa Department of Public Safety.

Flags on the complex will be flown at half-staff Friday between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Flags at the monument will be flown at half-staff for several days later this month as part of a national peace officer week.

The directive applies to U.S. and state flags on the Capitol building and on flag displays on the complex.
