All flags on Boston Police facilities are to be lowered to half staff effective immediately until sunset on Monday, August 30, 2021, in honor and remembrance of the victims of the senseless acts of violence perpetrated yesterday in Kabul, Afghanistan resulting in the tragic death of members of the United States military.

As you go about your day, please keep the Boston Police personnel serving on active military duty in your thoughts and prayers as they continue to serve and protect us both at home and abroad.
