Governor Andrew M. Cuomo directed that flags on all State government buildings be flown at half-staff in memory of New York City Police Officer Miosotis Familia, who was died earlier today after being shot in the line of duty. Flags will be flown at half-staff beginning Thursday, July 6 and remain in that position until Officer Familia’s interment.
"Officer Miosotis Familia spent 12 years protecting her community as a member of the NYPD and all New Yorkers share in the pain and heartbreak caused by her death," Governor Cuomo said. "Law enforcement officers across New York put their lives on the line to protect and serve their communities. This horrific and senseless assassination is a devastating reminder of the risks these brave men and women face each day. I offer my deepest condolences to Officer Familia's loved ones and fellow members of the NYPD. Today, we all come together to mourn one of New York's Finest."
