    Flag Directive for Thursday, February 15, 2018

    Flags to half-staff: Thursday, February 15, 2018

    Flags returned to full staff: Monday, February 19, 2018

    Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today directed that flags on all state government buildings be flown at half-staff today, February 15, until sunset on  Monday, February 19, in conjunction with a federal proclamation, to honor the victims of the Florida school shooting.

     “Once again, this nation sheds its tears for young lives cut short by senseless gun violence. But tears are not enough. The horrific school shooting in Florida is the deadliest since Sandy Hook, and it serves as yet another painful and infuriating reminder of the inaction in Washington.

    “How many more children must die before this nation acts? How many more times must we grieve before politicians put the safety of their communities before the financial contributions of special interest groups?

    “In the aftermath of Sandy Hook, New York did more than send our thoughts and prayers. We stepped up to pass the strongest gun safety legislation in the nation. The SAFE Act didn’t affect sportsmen, hunters or legal gun owners—but it reduced the risk to our children, to our families and to our communities. It banned assault weapons like AR-15s and kept guns out of the hands of dangerously mentally ill people. It’s far past time that the rest of the nation follows suit.”

I ask all New Yorkers to join me in offering our thoughts and prayers to his family, friends and colleagues at the New York State Police.”

    Trooper Anson was a member of the State Police for 31 years, serving his entire career in Troop G. He was last stationed at SP New Scotland.

    Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today directed that flags on all state government buildings be flown at half-staff on  Thursday, November 2 to honor the eight lives lost following yesterday’s terrorist attack in Lower Manhattan, New York City.

    “Today,  tomorrow and forever, we will remember the lives of those taken from us too soon, and we keep in our thoughts their loved ones who are feeling unimaginable pain,”  Governor Cuomo said. “We know that our freedom and our democracy are targets of this hate and it is critical that we work as one in the face of this attack.

    Yesterday, Governor Cuomo  directed state agencies, including the New York State Police, National Guard, the Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Services, the Metropolitan Transportation Authority, and the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey to increase security at high-profile locations around the state, including airports, bridges, tunnels, and mass transit systems.
