JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. — Today (June 9th), Governor Mike Parson ordered U.S. and Missouri flags be flown at half-staff at government buildings in DeKalb County on Wednesday, June 10, 2020, in honor of DeKalb County Sheriff Andy Clark.
On June 3, Sheriff Clark was killed in a motor vehicle crash while carrying out his duties and responding to assist a deputy on an emergency call.
“Sheriff Clark devoted more than 23 years of his life as a law enforcement officer committed to protecting his fellow citizens and making his community stronger,” Governor Parson said. “He served Missouri with heart and grit, and his final act of public service was responding to assist one of his deputy sheriffs at an emergency scene. Sheriff Clark’s career is an example of public service of the highest order.”
The flags will be held at half-staff on the day Sheriff Clark is laid to rest. To view the proclamation, click here.
