The Honor Guard exists to provide a ceremonial escort at the funeral of a fallen officer. At a moments notice, the unit can be mobilized to attend the funeral of a fallen officer anywhere in the State of Florida.
The Honor Guard also serve as "guardians of the colors," protecting the flags displayed at ceremonial functions. Honor Guard members are ambassadors to the community, dedicated to preserving tradition.
The Boynton Beach Police Department's Honor Guard is comprised of 20 members under the direction of Honor Guard Commander Lt. Paul Deale.
The team performs annually on Martin Luther King Jr. Day and Memorial Day, during Law Enforcement Memorial Week and the City's Holiday Parade.
