The MCSO Honor Guard is a volunteer unit comprised of Sworn Officers from all divisions of the Department. Its mission is to enhance the professional image of the Macomb County Sheriff’s Office, and the County of Macomb. The unit’s first priority is to honor and pay respects to fallen Officers and their families.
Our members dedicate their personal time to attend funerals and memorial services for our Brothers and Sisters in Law Enforcement, Fire Services and EMS that have lost their lives protecting and serving our citizens and our communities.
In May each year, we travel to Washington D.C. to participate in the National Law Enforcement Memorial Week. This is to represent our department with hundreds of other departments to Honor and pay tribute to the men and women who have served and sacrificed to make our society safer. A few of the events include escorting the surviving family members of Fallen Officers into the National Police Memorial and guarding the Memorial Wreath. We also compete against Honor Guards from across the country in Drill and Ceremony competitions.
Every year we have continued to honor our own fallen officers by participating in wreath laying ceremonies honoring their sacrifice for their communities.
Our Honor Guard also participates in local community service such as Shop with a Cop, and the Macomb Charitable Foundation.
The Honor Guard was founded only four years. All of our financial support has come solely from Honor Guard Members and donations we receive from citizens.
