Minneapolis Police Department Honor Guard

MPD Honor Guard

The Honor Guard was established in 1992 to represent the MPD at local  funeral services and services  honoring fallen  Peace Officers nationwide.  The  MPD  Honor Guard is comprised of full-time sworn  MPD  police officers  that  come from  a variety  of city  wide  positions and volunteer to  attend services  of  retired officer  funeral services,  active  duty  death funeral services, and in the  line of duty  death funeral services.

If requested by the  current or former employee's family  we will  send  a detail to your  family member's funeral and interment services.  Your family  member dedicated their  professional life  to  provide public safety  to  our  community and  will  be  recognized by  the  MPD  Honor Guard for their  noble service.

 Family testimonial:

"From the  dignity  of the  Honor Guard,  I    drew the  strength  I   needed to place Charlie's urn in the grave and our niece Jennifer  found the composure she  needed to  give the  reading.    My   family and  I    reflect  often  on  how much  the  Honor Guard  helped   us that  difficult day.   The  Honor Guard gave  us courage and made it possible for us to begin healing.  We are very grateful  to  the  MPD Honor Guard for  their vital service to  the  fallen and their  families." -Aileen Johnson
