Governor Andrew Cuomo today directed that flags on state government buildings be flown at half-staff on Thursday, March 16, in honor of New York State Police Trooper Brian S. Falb.
Trooper Falb died Monday, March 13, from an illness stemming from his assignment at the World Trade Center site following the attacks of September 11, 2001.
"Trooper Falb served the people of New York with the valor and dedication that embodies the very best of the New York State Police," Governor Cuomo said. "On behalf of all New Yorkers, I extend my deepest condolences to Trooper Falb’s family, friends, fellow troopers and members of the greater law enforcement community. We will lower flags on state government buildings Thursday in honor of Trooper Falb’s memory and service."
Trooper Falb lived in Clinton County and is survived by his wife and four children. Trooper Falb was an 18-year veteran of the New York State Police, and served his entire career in Troop B in Ray Brook. His latest assignment was with the Traffic Incident Management team.
