Flags lowered to half-staff in honor of Officer Jason Shuping

All North Carolina flags at state facilities are to be lowered to half-staff starting Dec. 18 until sunset on Sunday, Dec. 20, 2020 in honor of Concord Police Officer Jason Shuping, who died in the line of duty Wednesday, Dec. 16. Officer Shuping served on the Concord Police Department, located in Cabarrus County, for less than two years.

In making the announcement, Governor Roy Cooper said, “this tragedy along with Officer Herndon’s death last week reminds us that law enforcement officers have extremely difficult, sometimes dangerous jobs, and we owe them a debt of gratitude for their courage and service.”

As a show of respect, individuals, businesses, schools, municipalities, counties and other government subdivisions are encouraged to fly the North Carolina flag at half-staff for the duration of time indicated.
