Serving with Dignity
The Mason County Sheriff's Office Regional Honor Guard is a tradition that began in 2010. This five-member team wears specially designed formal uniforms that pay tribute to the national and state flags they bear. The personal discipline of each member, combined with many hours of training, ensures crisp, clean movements in unison as they move in military fashion during processions.
The Honor guard currently consists of Deputies and Officers from the Mason County Sheriff’s Office, Shelton Police Dept, Squaxin Police Dept, and the Mason County Jail. The Honor Guard represents the Sheriff's Office at many ceremonies that require the national and state flags to embellish the event and preserve traditions.
The Honor Guard posts colors at agency and public events, including swearing-in ceremonies, parades, and other ceremonies deemed appropriate by command staff. A Color Guard detail consists of four or five individuals whose purpose is to guard, carry, and post the national and state flags at formal functions.
The Honor Guard also participates in formal public memorial services, funeral services for dignitaries and active or retired members of the agency, as well as line of duty deaths of both agency members and law enforcement officers from other jurisdictions.
