Sen. Collins presents flag at Bangor PD in memory of former Chief Don Winlsow

BANGOR, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- Leaders at every level of government continue to honor the memory of former Bangor Police Chief Don Winslow, who died of cancer Thursday morning.

Senator Susan Collins stopped by the Bangor Police Station Friday with the flag she had ordered flown at half staff above the nations capitol yesterday in Winslow's honor.
She presented that flag to current police chief Mark Hathaway, who will make sure it is presented to Winslow's widow at the funeral service.
Collins says she served with Winslow on a non-profit board and got to see his wisdom and integrity.
She also added that the flash mob that the Bangor Community held for the Winslow's last month shows what an impact he had on the people he swore to protect and serve.

"I think that's indicative of the strong feelings that the residents of Bangor had for Don," Collins said. "He was an extraordinary leader and he was a person who was trusted to make good decisions and someone who devoted his whole life to public service. his passing at such an early age is truly a tragedy."

Winslow was 57 years old. Services are set for next week. There will be visiting hours on Wednesday July 16th from 4 to 7 pm at the Gracie Theater at Husson University. The funeral will be held on Thursday July 17th at 2 pm at St John's Catholic Church in Bangor.
