Honor Guard

opening day 97The Fredericksburg Police Department’s Honor Guard represents both the agency and the community it serves with great honor, respect, and prestige. The Honor Guard participates in many events throughout the year including the Veteran’s Day Parade, the Fredericksburg Christmas Parade, and other special events where the presentation of colors is requested. The Honor Guard proudly renders Honors at funerals of fallen officers, both locally and throughout our surrounding states.

The Honor Guard is composed of Fredericksburg police officers who serve this important function as an ancillary duty. Although the Honor Guard is a Patrol Division function, each officer assigned to the Honor Guard works a regular full-time job within one of the Department’s three divisions. Each member of the Honor Guard is chosen after successfully applying for the position and going through a competitive selection process.
