The Hudson Police Honor Guard Unit was formed in 2002 and made its debut at the opening of the new Hudson Police Station. The Honor Guard performs mostly Color Guard duties but can, and has, participated in many other ceremonial events, both inside and out of the City of Hudson. The Honor Guard consists of five officers and one sergeant. A majority of the members are veterans of the US military where they received their training in Drill and Ceremony. All members have volunteered for this highly responsible position and some of the outside details are conducted on their own time. The Honor Guard is proud to represent the Department and City and have had their services requested at many events including:
• The honor of leading the Hudson Memorial Day Parade
• Perform graveside honors at retired Hudson officer funerals
• Greater Cleveland Police Memorial Society / Police Week Memorial Service
• Presented the Colors at the Summit County Emergency Dispatcher Banquet
• Members have attended the National Police Memorial Services in Washington, D.C.
• Members have represented Hudson at just about every funeral of Fallen Officers in the Greater Cleveland area since its inception
• Presenting the Colors at various athletic events: the Hudson Junior Invitational, Hudson High School football, Cleveland Cavaliers, Indians and Browns games.
The members are proud to represent the City of Hudson and the Hudson Police Department and are honored to participate in these events. For information on the Honor Guard or for availability, please contact the Police Department directly or Sgt. Troy Wilcox
