MORRISTOWN, NJ -  All flags will be flown at half-staff through Sunday, December 6, as per Executive Order 206 in honor of State Police Recruit Lucas C. Homeijer, who passed away following injuries sustained during a training exercise at the State Police Academy.

“State Police Recruit Homeijer was taken from us far too soon,” Governor Murphy said. “Lucas was a bright young man, with an even brighter future. His passing is immensely tragic and is a loss that will be felt not only by his family and friends, but also by the State of New Jersey, which he had dedicated himself to serve. Tammy and I would like to send our heartfelt condolences to his family, friends, and classmates at the State Police Academy.”
