Governor McCrory Orders Flags Lowered To Honor Officer Thalmann

Governor Pat McCrory has ordered all North Carolina flags at state facilities in Craven County to be lowered to half-staff on Friday, April 4, 2014 to honor the life of New Bern Police Officer Alexander E. Thalmann who was killed in the line of duty.

“We will be eternally grateful for the price Officer Thalmann paid while protecting the citizens of his community,” Governor McCrory said. “We should never forget the risk North Carolina law enforcement officers undertake on our behalf each day they pin on their badge."

Officer Thalmann's funeral will occur Friday afternoon in New Bern and the burial will be in Washington.
