Honor Guard

"All gave some, some gave all..."

The Leon County Sheriff's Office Honor Guard Unit consists of one Captain, one Lieutenant, two Sergeants and eighteen deputies. The unit is divided into two squads of nine deputies and supervised by one sergeant.

The Honor Guard Unit is a secondary duty assignment and members are selected from varying units within the agency. Candidates are thoroughly screened and must pass an oral interview to be selected to join this elite unit within the Sheriff's Office. Members are required to maintain impeccable appearance, high moral standards, and strict order and discipline.

The Honor Guard performs funeral honors for Sheriff's Office members killed in the line of duty, as well as for members of other law enforcement agencies when requested. The unit also represents the agency at a variety of ceremonial functions requiring the Presentation of Colors. The Leon County Sheriff's Office Honor Guard averages four functions per month throughout the year.
