The Arcadia Police Department Honor Guard made their debut at the recent Breeders' Cup World Championships at Santa Anita Park. The Honor Guard began to take shape earlier this year, with members being fitted for the specialized uniforms, equipment being procured, and lots of practice. The Honor Guard is comprised of a Lieutenant, a Sergeant, and six Police Officers, all of whom volunteered to be part of the unit.
The APD Honor Guard will participate in law enforcement funerals and services, honoring the deceased for their service and sacrifice. They will also be used for services of retired Arcadia Police Department members.
Not just to be used in line of duty or law enforcement deaths and memorial services, but the APD Honor Guard will proudly participate in ceremonies requiring a Color Guard. The Color Guard will present our National, State, and City flags at City Council and civic events, sporting events, and other requested venues.
Four members of the Arcadia Police Department Honor Guard are pictured below. Please visit the APD Facebook photo album page where we will post pictures of the Honor Guard and Color Guard.
