“The entire state of Michigan mourns the death of Trooper Jeffrey Werda who lost his life this morning while in the line of duty,” Snyder said in the statement.
As a 10-year veteran of the Michigan State Police, Trooper Werda worked tirelessly to protect the people of our state and put his life at risk day after day to protect our communities. I extend my heartfelt condolences to Trooper Werda’s wife, his three children and his entire family.”
Snyder has ordered the United States flags on all state buildings and within the State Capitol Complex to be lowered immediately in Werda's honor. The governor says U.S. flags should remain a half-staff until Werda's is laid to rest. Funeral arrangements were pending.
When flown at half-staffed or half-mast, the United States flag should be hoisted first to the peak for an instant and then lowered to the half-staff or half-mast position. The flag should again be raised to the peak before it is lowered for the day.
Werda was a resident of Gladwin and leaves behind a wife and three children.
