Honor Guard


The Butler County Sheriff’s Honor Guard is a highly trained unit under the direction of Corrections Officer George Coleman. The Honor Guard presents the Colors for a variety of ceremonies. This special group attends dinners, parades, or a swearing-in event. The Honor Guard is also present at the funerals of law enforcement personnel. Honor Guard members project the ultimate respect and dignity, performing casket guard for any fallen law enforcement brother or sister.

In 2012, the Honor Guard had a total of ten members: George Coleman, Brandon Gay, Dan Turner, Chris Morris, Paul Weddle, Charles Grimes, Brian Vogel, Greg Turner, Mitch Wells, Brian Romans and Evan Depew.
