Santa Ana Police Honor Guard
The Honor Guard Detail serves as official representatives of the Chief of Police, Paul M. Walters, and the Santa Ana Police Department. The Honor Guard participates at various ceremonies, special events, and law enforcement funerals; especially when a fellow officer has made the ultimate sacrifice in the line of duty – serving and protecting others – our families and loved ones.
Each member of this special team understands the significance of their role in paying that final tribute to a fallen officer with humility and respect. Professionalism, discipline, precision, and empathy are without compromise at these memorial services, which often provide a lasting memory of a beloved warrior for the loved ones left behind.
This year, the Santa Ana Police Honor Guard minted a commemorative unit challenge coin as shown below. As part of a fund-raising campaign, the coins are offered for sale at the price of $10 each. Proceeds will be used to sponsor the Honor Guard Unit to attend the National Law Enforcement Memorial Services held in Washington DC in May 2011.
