The mission of the Tampa Police Department Honor Guard is to represent
the department at funerals, ceremonial functions, and other special
events. The Honor Guard renders honors at the funerals of not only
to Tampa Police Officers lost in the line of duty, but also at funerals
to both active and retired Police Officers as well as city officials.
The Honor Guard serves as the Color Guard at various city events, as
well as events held in the private sector. This role is supported
by our Reserve Force Honor Guard, a subsidiary unit of the regular
officers and a valuable source of our unit. Together, we represent
the department and serve as ambassadors of the City of Tampa at events
on the local, state, and national level and as such, its members strive
to represent the highest standards of integrity, professionalism, and
dedication to duty.
