Gov. Mike Pence has declared a period of mourning for three Indiana law enforcers who lost their lives in the line of duty in the last 11 days, according to a press release from the governor’s office.

Pence ordered flags to be lowered throughout the state Tuesday, July 8, to honor Tipton County Deputy Sheriff Jacob Calvin, Indianapolis Metropolitan Officer Perry Renn and Gary Police Officer Jeffrey Westerfield. Flags will continue to be at half-mast through the final services for Renn and Westerfield.

"Every Hoosier feels the loss of these fallen officers and stands with their families and communities during this week of heartbreak. It is altogether fitting that every community in Indiana show solidarity, support and prayers for these officers and their families during this time,” Pence said.

Renn, 51, died as a result a fatal shooting Saturday, July 5, in Indianapolis’ nightlife district. Westerfield, 46, was found shot to death Sunday, July 6, in his patrol car in Gary. Calvin, 31, died June 28 when his patrol car rolled over on his way to a crime scene in Tipton.

Flags were lowered Monday, July 7, in Tipton County as Calvin was laid to rest.
