The Honor Guard was officially adopted as a formal special unit within the Sheriff Office in January of 2006.
The Douglas County Sheriff Honor Guard’s primary mission is to pay tribute and remember the Peace Officers that have given the ultimate sacrifice while selflessly executing a sworn duty to protect the citizens of our community. Our motto “Honoris Causa” means: “For the Sake of Honor”
The Douglas County Sheriff’s Honor Guard is comprised of five dedicated deputies that have volunteered their time to demonstrate the true meaning of Honor. Our definition of Honor includes pride, integrity, professionalism, and courage. We are a ceremonial unit, which provides military style honors for our fallen comrades and their families. This includes Posting/Presentation of Colors, Casket Detail, Casket/Door Guards, Rifle Detail, and Flag Fold Detail. We also represent the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office during the presentation of Colors at Law Enforcement functions and other community events. The Honor Guard unit is a self-sufficient entity of the Sheriff’s Office. All money spent on uniforms, training and equipment is raised solely by donations and fund raising events.
