Honor Guard

The Wellesley Police Department Honor Guard consists of police officers who volunteer to represent the department during functions such as parades, inaugurations, official ceremonies, athletic events and funerals for law enforcement officers and other public figures. Honor Guard members wear a distinctive "Class A" uniform when performing this specialized duty. 

The Honor Guard combines precision drill and marching skills when operating. The unit carries the M1 Garand rifle and the flags of the United States, Commonwealth of Massachusetts, and the Wellesley Police. The unit is composed of both veteran and newer officers.


Wellesley Police Honor Guard members have appeared in Washington DC, Fenway Park, the State House, and at the Pawtucket Red Sox season opener on an annual basis.
