THE HONOR GUARD
The Pitt County Sheriff's Office formed the Honor Guard in 2005. The guard serves as a ceremonial unit.
This 14-member guard is comprised of active duty deputy sheriffs and detention officers who volunteered for this special assignment and were chosen to represent our office and profession during the most solemn and special occasions.
The guard's primary mission is to pay tribute to the North Carolina law enforcement officers who lose or have lost their lives in the line of duty. They also serve as special ambassadors for the Office of the Sheriff and represent the Office in ceremonial events.
Our Honor Guard has served at special events to include; funerals, celebrations, oaths of office, high school sports, ECU sporting events, an NFL Carolina Panthers home football game, an NHL Carolina Hurricanes hockey match, parades, and many various community events. Some photos of our beloved guard may be seen here on this page.
