Today, Governor Laura Kelly directed flags be flown at half-staff at all state grounds, buildings, and facilities on August 17, 2021 in honor of former Kansas Attorney General Vern Miller. Attorney General Miller will be interred during services held on Tuesday, August 17, 2021. 

“As Attorney General, District Attorney, Sheriff, or Marshal, Vern Miller was one of Kansas’ great law enforcement officers,” said Governor Laura Kelly. “His commitment to enforcing the law fairly and standing up for all Kansans defined law enforcement like few before or after. I know that Vern’s legacy will live on through his impact and service to our state.”
