The Racine County Sheriff's Office Honor Guard consists of 12 sworn members of the Racine County Sheriff's Office. The Honor Guard is called out for funerals for past and present members of the Racine County Sheriff's Office. The Honor Guard serves at these funerals as a show of respect and honor for the deceased Deputy's service as a Law Enforcement Officer to the county and the Racine County Sheriff's Office. 

Using special Honor Guard uniforms and equipment, the Honor Guard performs a casket watch during the visitation, performs pall-bearer duties, sets up the squad procession to the burial site, folds and presents the flag to the family, and arranges the rifle salute, bugler, and bagpiper.  

The Honor Guard also attends line-of-duty funerals for deceased officers from other law enforcement agencies throughout the State of Wisconsin and adjoining states as a show of respect for the fallen officer, their families and their law enforcement agency.
