Honor Guard

The Warren Police Honor Guard was established to represent the Warren Police Department, its officers and families at police funerals, parades and other ceremonial occasions. The Warren Police Honor Guard is designed to provide the department with a specially trained ceremonial team to render honors, preserve tradition, stimulate Esprit-de-corps and instill pride. It is our intention to assist all officers and their families during their time of emotional duress from the loss of their loved one.

The Honor Guard accomplishes this by providing guidance and uniformity in the conduct of ceremonies and by establishing a specific sequence of events during those ceremonies. The Honor Guard consists of hard-working, dedicated officers that have given, and will continue to give, their greatest effort to ensure that their department and their Township are represented with pride, dignity and professionalism.

The Honor Guard uniform was designed by Honor Guard members. Black trousers with a Sharp Grey stripe, white dress uniform shirt, West Point Grey blouse and patent leather uniform shoes are worn by the members of the Honor Guard.

The Honor Guard has taken part in the Annual Police Week ceremonies in Washington, D.C. The week is dedicated to honoring Law Enforcement Officers who gave the ultimate sacrifice.
