Police Honor Guard

Honor GuardThe 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 conducts a week long school opportunity. 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 are limited and on a first-come basis.

For future class opportunities, please contact class coordinator Officer Alex Ramirez: aramirez@lexingtonpolice.ky.gov.

We appreciate your consideration, and hope to see you in the next class!
