City Hall Flag at Half-Mast for CPD Officer Johnson
The U.S. flag at Elkins City Hall will remain at half-mast until after the funeral service for Officer Cassie Johnson, the Charleston Police Department officer who was killed in the line of duty earlier this week. Her funeral has not yet been scheduled.
Officer Johnson was shot Tuesday afternoon while responding to a call concerning a parking complaint on Charleston’s West Side. She was taken off life support and pronounced dead on Thursday. The first female CPD officer to be sworn in by a female Charleston mayor, Johnson joined the force in January of 2019.
An online fundraiser for Officer Johnson’s family has been organized by the Charleston Citizen Police Academy Alumni Organization.
According to the Officer Down Memorial Page, 269 law enforcement officers have died in the line of duty so far in 2020.
