2000 the Lansing Police Department reactivated the Honor Guard.
Currently it consists of 12 volunteer members from the Department.
The Honor Guard, with the approval of Chief Johnson, was outfitted
in the blouse style uniform and cross draw holsters.
Honor Guard's primary mission is to honor officers who fall
in the line of duty, participate in special events and honor
LPD officers who die after retirement.
the request of an officer's family or an active or retired
LPD officer, the Honor Guard will attend and honor an officer
at his or her funeral service or visitation. The Honor Guard
also understands that it's presence is not always desired
and therefore request that the wishes of the honored officer's
family be considered before making arrangements for the Honor
Guard's attendance. As the Honor Guard consists of voluntary
members, please make your requests as early as possible so
that schedules and plans may be adjusted and made. And please
provide as much detail as to location of both the visitation
and funeral service location. It is also recommended that
death notice information be provided for the daily log at
the LPD Detention Unit at 483-4674.
the last three years the LPD Honor Guard has been requested
for a number of funerals and services and the members are
proud to serve in honoring their fallen brothers and sisters.
Law enforcement is a career which is not for the weak at heart
or mind and for those that have endure 25 years are very special
people. We thank you for your service.
