Governor Asa Hutchinson has ordered the United States flag and the state flag of Arkansas to be lowered to half-staff in tribute to the memory of Independence County Patrol Deputy Frank Ramirez. Flags will remain at half-staff until the day of interment.
Deputy Ramirez died in the line of duty on the morning of Thursday, November 18, 2021, after being involved in a one vehicle accident. 
Governor Hutchinson released the following statement: “Deputy Frank Ramirez lost his life in service to his community. Susan and I are praying for the comfort of Deputy Ramirez’s wife, two children, extended family, and fellow deputies. Deputy Ramirez’s death is a reminder that there is no such thing as a routine assignment for a police officer. I am grateful that in spite of that risk, hundreds of Arkansas officers such as Deputy Ramirez choose law enforcement as a career and go to work every day to assist and protect the rest of us.”
