The Maui News

U.S. and Hawaii flags will fly at at half-staff until Friday in honor of two police officers slain in the line of duty on Sunday, Gov. David Ige announced Monday.

Honolulu Police Department officers Tiffany Enriquez, a seven-year veteran of the force, and Kaulike Kalama, a nine-year veteran of the force, were shot and killed while responding to a call in the Diamond Head area of Oahu.

Flags will also be flown at half-mast from sunrise until sunset on the day of services for each of the fallen officers. Notification will be provided when information about the services is available, the Governor’s Office said.

“These officers paid the ultimate price to ensure the safety of our community. As we honor their sacrifice, we grieve with their families,” Ige said.
