In August of 2006, the Sheriffs Office began rebuilding its Honor Guard by sending three deputies to Honor Guard School which was instructed by the Washington D.C. Metro Police Department. In October 2006, two additional members were sent to school, followed by two more in September of 2007, giving the Honor Guard a total of seven members.
In 2007, the Honor Guard participated in several events including the Law Enforcement Memorial Day ceremony on the courthouse lawn, marched in parades, and gave presentations. They were presented with the "Most Patriotic" award for their participation in the Watertown 4th of July parade this past summer. The Honor Guard continues to hold monthly practices and is looking forward to participating in many more events and presentations during 2008.
Current Honor Guard members are:
|Sergeant Jason Hacht|
|Detective Chad Garcia|
|Deputy Robert Meyer|
|Deputy Lori Hogan|
|Deputy Vaughn Johnson|
|Deputy Scott Bondurant|
|Deputy Tom Klemke|
Deputy Adam Kleist
Deputy Amy Heggie
At the present time, the Honor Guard is seeking funds to properly outfit and equip each member. If you would be interested in donating to the Honor Guard or in hosting a presentation by the group, please contact any of the following:
