About Us
Prior to the 77th Legislature, state law did not provide for the presentation of the state flag to the family of a deceased peace officer. Currently, the family of a deceased veteran is presented with a United States flag by an honor guard, upon request. House Bill 815 provides for the presentation of the state flag and a certificiate of gratitude to the next of kin of a deceased person who served as a Texas Peace Officer.

House Bill 815 amended the Government Code to provide that the next of kin of a deceased Texas peace officer may receive on request a state flag from the Commission on Law Enforcement Officer Standards and Education (TCOLE).

Police Officer's Prayer

When I start my tour of duty God
wherever crime may be,
As I walk the darkened streets alone,
let me be close to Thee.

Please give me understanding
with both the young and old.
Let me listen with attention
until their story's told.

Let me never make a judgement
in a rash or callous way,
but let me hold my patience,
let each man have his say.

Lord, if some dark and dreary night,
I must give up my life.
Lord, with your understanding love,
protect my children and wife.
