Flags lowered to half staff
Gov. Jay Inslee directed state agencies to lower state and national flags to half staff Friday in honor of Tacoma police Officer Jake Gutierrez.
How to help
Two funds have been established to help Gutierrez’s family.
Donations can be made to the Officer Jake Gutierrez Fund at any Wells Fargo Bank or online at tpcrimestoppers.com.
To donate to the memorial service, write checks to the Tacoma Police Department and drop them off at any police station or mail them to Tacoma Police Department, 3701 S. Pine St., Tacoma WA 98409.
There have been reports of fake GoFundMe memorial pages for Gutierrez, officials said. The real funds are at Wells Fargo and Crime Stoppers.
