The Honor Guard is utilized for funerals, parades, flag raising ceremonies and any other function approved by the Sheriff.
The Honor Guard participates in two formal ceremonies a year. Both are in May during the National Law Enforcement Officer’s Week where we honor those officers in our State that have been killed in the line of duty. One ceremony is held at the James D. Hoff Peace Officer’s Memorial at Idlewild Park in Reno and the other at the State Peace Officers Memorial in Carson City on the Legislative grounds.
Honor Guard members participate in annual training and are distinguished by their special uniform appearance.
