The Lexington Police Honor Guard Unit was formed in the 1980's by a small group of officers with military experience. It is currently comprised of officers that serve on a part-time basis. The primary function of the Honor Guard is to honor fallen officers, active and retired. The majority of assignments involve presenting the Colors during parades, conferences and division ceremonies.
Honor Guard School
Attention all Public Safety Guards:
The Lexington Honor Guard will be conducting a week long school on October 25th through October 29th. The school is a 40 hour Kentucky Law Enforcement Council (KLEC) certified course which focuses on developing basic knowledge and proficiency with Honor Guard related assignments; military drill, parades, posting colors, firing party, casket guard, flag folding and concludes on Friday with an exercise that includes a simulated full honors funeral.
We welcome agencies from all over the state and region, and work hard to provide the highest level of training possible. Because of the direct nature of the instruction and the level of activity, class size will be limited. We are currently filling spots on a first-come basis.
If this course looks like a good fit for your agency’s training needs or if you have any further questions, please contact class coordinator Officer Alex Ramirez.
We appreciate your consideration, and hope to see you in October!
