Retired Deputy Chief of Police Richard Daigle was presented with a cased flag and certificate by Chief Randy Fontenot Tuesday. The certificate reads:
"This is to certify that the accompanying flag was flown over the United States Capitol on March 1, 2021 At the request of the Honorable John Kennedy, United States Senator, this flag was flown for Richard Daigle, Deputy Chief Eunice Police Department in honor of his retirement."

It is interesting to note that the flag was flown over the capitol on Daigle's official day of Retirement.

Officer Jeffery Myers of the Eunice Police Department made the arrangements to have the flag flown and encased the flag for daigle and framed the certificate. He was not available for the photo because he was attending the police academy.
