CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — In honor of fallen Corpus Christi officer Alan McCollum, Governor Greg Abbott has honored a request to fly flags at half-staff.

Mayor Joe McComb made the request to the governors office.

“The first lady and I extend our prayers of comfort to the McCollum family during this time of grief. I urge all Texans to remember and honor the public service of Officer McCollum to the United States as a highly decorated Army veteran and to the State of Texas as a brave and distinguished peach officer,” stated Governor Abbott.

Today Texas flags and American flags will be raised to full staff and then lowered to half-staff out of respect.

The City of Corpus Christi has lowered all municipal office flags effective immediately and they ask the public to follow suit in honor Officer McCollum during this time of grief.
