BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) _ North Dakota is remembering its fallen law enforcement officers.
Gov. Jack Dalrymple has declared Wednesday as Peace Officers Memorial Day, in accordance with a proclamation signed by President Barack Obama.
The governor has directed all government agencies to fly the American and North Dakota flags at hall-staff from sunrise to sunset.
Dalrymple says North Dakota remains one of the safest states in the nation due in large part to the law enforcement officers who ``put their lives on the line every day to protect and serve their fellow citizens.''
