Governor Kathy Hochul today announced flags on State buildings will be flown at half-staff on April 19 and 20 in honor of fallen Retired Investigator Patrick J. Hogan.

"We lost a true hero and public servant in Investigator Patrick J. Hogan, whose dedication to protecting and serving his community will always be remembered," Governor Hochul said. "Investigator Hogan's sacrifice and commitment to the people of New York will never be forgotten and we owe it to him and all those affected by September 11 to continue to fight for their health and well-being."
