Honor Guard

The Benton County Sheriff’s Office Honor Guard, a ceremonial unit comprised of deputies from various divisions, is led by Captain Andy Lee.

The Honor Guard is always ready to respond, taking its mission seriously by honoring fallen officers with dignity and respect. They also show the utmost respect to the families who bear the ultimate sacrifice for the community.

With a distinctive uniform symbolizing their commitment, the Honor Guard participates in funerals, offering Silent Guard, pallbearers, flag folding, rifle team, and playing Taps for police officers killed in the line of duty. Beyond funerals, the unit represents the Sheriff’s Office at community events, award ceremonies, and the police officer’s memorial ceremony.
